The more stake is delegated to a stake pool (up to a certain point of saturation), the more likely it is to make the next block — and then the rewards are shared between stake pool operator fixed fee and everyone who delegated their stake to that stake pool proportional to their investment — but also according to stake pool operator reward percentage they set by themselves, at anywhere from <1% to 100%!

What happens with my ADA when I am staking it?

Your staked ADA never leaves your personal possession. It’s not “locked up” in any sense either, you are free to un-delegate, spend and send your ADA at any time.
