What language do u need to learn to customize Android OS?
I know Java is the best language to develope Android apps. But do u need to learn C language in order to customize the Android operating system?

customize how? you don't need an app to do that, as the only changes you can make can be done in your Settings menu.
like most portable devices, Androids are locked down so there is no root user, and your device needs to be rooted to make any changes not in the Settings menu.
Java is mostly a display/interface technology, but you can set an app up to make changes (with proper permissions) to the device's Settings, however, all of these changes are what can be done in the Settings app.

Android is open source
as far as I know
it's "open" only insofar as the libraries are available.
I.e. the source code itself is not available for customization.
(But of course one could replace a library function with a custom library function.)
the libraries would be accessible
in the same way as any Linux-based library
and so ***I would expect***
any programming language that can be compiled on Linux
and that can access such libraries
can be used to customize the OS.

Android is based on a Linux kernel. So you need to learn Linux
