I'm not sure how or whether you can add the built in cam from your MacBook but I've added a usb cam on my Shadow Ghost and you might find the results disappointing due to the lack of bandwidth available for usb. If you do get it working you may be able to play around with capture resolutions to reduce bandwidth and get smooth video but I certainly wasn't able to do that with my setup.

This is what I'd like to know; my webcam on my Microsoft Surface cannot be found as well. 

It would be great if we can use our Shadow for Twitch for example as well.

I'm not entirely sure if builtin webcams work, but I have seen external cams work. Also, keep in mind you have to have a pretty stable network connection to Shadow, low ping, and pretty high upload speed in order to use a camera properly.

Yeah exactly! I will try of game streaming works for me, i would youse my built in cam to twitch. If i don’t know i will be streaming more then once in a life time it’s not enough to buy an external cam.

From what i can think of a better work around would be stream from your macbook and capture shadow as a window and overlay your webcam that way threw OBS. ( if your able to)
