I saw these words are pretty similar to the examples that I read so i want to know if i can use them interchangeably and is LODGE often used by English speaking like you.

They are interchangeable but only in the context of something stuck somewhere:

I see the problem: you've got half a carrot stuck/lodged in the rotor of your washing machine.

Stuck has various other meanings, which lodge does not. Some examples where lodge would not work:

I'm stuck on this math problem.

The gum is stuck to the bottom of my desk.

Lodge is also a somewhat more "educated" vocabulary word, so it may not sound appropriate in every context.
