I found some 'warm white' ws2812b's (sk6812) on AliXP: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1m-4m-5m-sk6812-similar-ws2812b-ws2812-led-strip-rgbcw-rgbnw-black-white-pcb-individually-addressable/32689414130.html Would they be compatible with NeopixelBus? Apparently they have a warm white led (covered in some yellowy stuff) next to the rgb leds, Would that mean they need to receive 4 color values instead of 3?

They should be. Use the NeoGrbwFeature wiki or one of the other 4 element features that match the color order.
There is even a method for that model NeoSk6812Method

OK, I've ordered a strip and I'll see if it works. I'll let you know if they don't.
