In Strike Force Heroes 2, there's a lot of options to customize your soldier's appearance. Most of them are located at "Appearance" tab/screen. This is where you can view what your character looks like with the weapons and attachments that are currently equipped. It can be accessed from Soldiers menu by clicking on 2nd icon in top-left corner, and the menu itself can be accessed from Main Menu by clicking on the highlighted Soldiers button, or from Campaign/Challenges/Custom Game menus, by clicking on Soldiers button in bottom-left corner.
In Appearance screen, you can also select the helmet, body, and camo type you would like to wear, with all changes being displayed instantly. There are 4 helmets, 3 bodies, and 20 camos to choose from for each class, with helmets and bodies being unique for each class, and camos being same for all classes. None of these options have any impact on gameplay, they only exist for cosmetic purposes.

Camos re-color certain body and helmet zones. There are 20 different camos available for all soldiers, unlockable from the Slot Machine. There are 5 main color/style types, but each camo itself is unique.
The camos are earned from left to right, from top to bottom, obtaining a new camo from each color/style each time one is unlocked. To earn a camo, you must get 3 Camo icons in the slot machine, this will unlock one next camo, and only for class who just spinned the machine. Due to that, unlocking all camos for all classes can take a while.

You can only see Skins when playing a match, and the ordinary character models are displayed at all time when in the soldier customization menu. Some parts of each Skin are customized by the camo you equip, and equipped helmets and bodies don't matter at all in this case.
Another thing to mention is that you are not the only one who can equip skins. Any enemy or ally can use them too. (When you see the following names in your allies and opponents, they will show up in those skins.)
