Did you ask your mobile carrier if they will offer the update for that device on their network? Asking your manufacturer isn't enough, the manufacturer creates and releases the updates for devices but your carrier is the one that decides whether they will push that update to the devices on their network.
If the manufacturer releases the update for your specific model number, you don't necessarily have to update via a carrier OTA update, you can download the update manually and flash it via your devices specific flash tool on PC. Then it doesn't matter whether your carrier offers the update, you'll be flashing the update directly from the manufacturer.
As for installing custom ROMs, that will require your device to have an unlocked bootloader. You need to check the status of your bootloader to see if it is locked or unlocked. If it's locked, you'll have to search for the method to unlock bootloader on devices with your specific device model number and your specific android version or build number.
If you find a working method to unlock bootloader on your device, thrn you can flash TWRP on your device. To find the method for flashing TWRP on your device, do a Google search for:
"Install TWRP on (your specific model number)"
If TWRP exists for your model number, that will find it and how to flash it.
Then you can flash custom ROMs if any exist for your specific model number. To find custom ROMs for your model number, do a Google search for:
"Custom ROMs for (your specific model number)"
If any exist, that will find them, if you find a ROM, follow the instructions in the thread or guide that you find the ROM in to install it.
