I am looking to create an online course and a paid member site. Are there any templates for that available on Homestead, or would using another web host be more beneficial for something like that?

I have seen people do this with our Storefront. It would depend on exactly what material you were selling. If you were selling a video of the course material, for instance, you would want it to be purchased and downloaded. The storefront can do that.

Our Storefront software allows you to create a downloadable product. The format is not important to the software. When it is purchased it can then be downloaded. Best to make it an mp4 or other common format so it is easier to watch.

Can I use video files from my computer or must I import them from YouTube?

You would be able to use WebDav to connect into your BigCommerce's file system, this is how you would be able to add the videos. Unfortunately, the most we can support regarding this is providing you support.bigcommerce.com. Otherwise, using YouTube can make it easier to add videos to your store to be displayed.
