Can I say, "This is the place that I was born"?
How about the following case?
Argon gas welding is a welding method where a welding rod is melted while argon gas shuts off the oxygen in the atmosphere.
Can I use "that" instead of "where"?
Hello, I am 'The French', I'm not a teacher,
but in your first phrase I don't think you can put 'that' instead of the word 'where', because you are talking about a site, and normally where is the best word you write.
It is just my mind.
In second sentence the word where is reffeRring
onto the way of the method in this case it's nice.
No it's not, I'm afraid - BobK
Have a nice day.

I suppose a few populists might be happy with 'where' in that context; journalists sometimes use it to save words. Anyway, while a usage may be beau it's never nice - uses 'OK', 'fine', 'grammatical', 'acceptable'....
