Whether or not you can install custom roms/recoveries depends on whether or not you can install custom kernels. You can only install custom kernels if the bootloader is unlocked/can be unlocked. Most android phones have an unlocked bootloader nowadays but I have no idea about the game stick and a quick google turned up nothing...

A game stick is a device that allows you to play android games on a 1080p display..

I decided to search for a custom rom, rather than if the bootloader is unlocked and I found this:

So the bootloader must be unlocked, not only that but it seems it has a recovery installed by default :)

Not quite true. There are some phones that you can install both recovery and custom rom without custom kernel. My mom's Xperia P is one example, I have both CWR and custom ROM on that, with locked bootloader.

My S4 Mini can also get recovery and custom ROM without unlocking the bootloader, but I unlocked mine for obvious reasons. :)
