What are the principles of making ice cream?

I can find plenty of ice cream recipes, but I want to know the general principles that can help me fulfill my ice cream dreams. Can I use any kind of milk I please -- e.g. soy milk, soy yogurt, greek yogurt, canned coconut milk, almond milk, half & half, combinations thereof? Is agar or another thickener necessary, and what happens without it? How do sweeteners fit in -- agave, sugar, maple syrup, whatever -- and how do they change the ice cream's properties? I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker.
