If it was there I wouldn't have to ask haha, I know it should be there, but right now I only see Service and Server, that's all

You connected OBS with Twitch, so OBS gets the streaming key internally. This is a new OBS feature that is probably not yet mirrored in most of the guides out there. You don't need to do anything else - just start streaming.

To be able to enter a stream key in OBS, you need to disconnect Twitch from OBS first. To stream to someone else's Twitch account by their stream key while being connected to the own Twitch account isn't supported by OBS.

This means your other users have to disconnect Twitch, and after that they are able to enter your stream key.

To save the connected account, they can duplicate their profile (Profile->duplicate) and disconnect Twitch in the new profile only, then enter the stream key. To switch back to their own connected Twitch account, they can simply switch back to the previous profile, where it is still connected. Rename the profiles accordingly: one for example as "My connected Twitch", and the other "Guest Twitch with key".
