So I have an asus rog strix b550-f gaming wifi motherboard and when I use a splitter jack or plug the headset in the mic jack, my mic goes picks up sound from the hearing part (where sound comes out from a headset). I cannot seem to find a fix and its really annoying

How you connect that to your headset depends upon how your headset is wired.
If your headset has separate speaker & mic cables you plug these in accordingly.
If your headset has a combo speaker & mic cable you need a splitter that breaks this into separate mic and speaker cables.

My laptop has a single combined speaker/mic connector. My desktop has separate connections like you do. My headset works with both because it comes with a separate splitter. I use the headset without the splitter with my laptop. I use the headset with the splitter with my desktop.

If the problem is when using the front panel jacks on the computer case, make sure that the headphone and microphone jacks are properly connected to the motherboard's front panel audio header.
