Links divert to google browser on mac

HI, I am brand new to Brave. I am using Duckduckgo as my default search engine and brave as my default browser which I could set up in Safari but not Chrome… chrome does not allow me to switch my default browser. So when I click a link while in Google chrome but using the duckduckgo SE it automatically diverts to google. Similarly even though I have deleted all other search engines when i go to youtube i am still using their search engine… is it possible to use youtube with the duck duck go search engine with brave installed? All this is a new world to me, so please forgive any naïveté or lack of understanding.
