I wanted to add a static text with a link in front of my category page and product page breadcrumbs.

Existing Breadcrumbs:

Home > Category > Sub Category > Sub Category

How I want it to be

Home > Static Text with link > Category > Sub Category > Sub Category

Remember, my cms pages breadcrumbs need to remain as they are. Not like above.

You need to make changes in the below file.

// @codingStandardsIgnoreFile

<?php if ($crumbs && is_array($crumbs)) : ?>
<div class="breadcrumbs">
    <ul class="items">
        <?php foreach ($crumbs as $crumbName => $crumbInfo) : ?>
            <li class="item <?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $crumbName ?>">
            <?php if ($crumbInfo['link']) : ?>
                <a href="<?= /* @escapeNotVerified */ $crumbInfo['link'] ?>" title="<?= $block->escapeHtml($crumbInfo['title']) ?>"><?= $block->escapeHtml($crumbInfo['label']) ?></a>
            <?php elseif ($crumbInfo['last']) : ?>
                <strong><?= $block->escapeHtml($crumbInfo['label']) ?></strong>
            <?php else: ?>
                <?= $block->escapeHtml($crumbInfo['label']) ?>
            <?php endif; ?>
            //custom code by John
           //your customer code here, 
            if ($crumbName == "home") : ?>
                <li class="item">
                    <a href="Your static link here" title="">Your static link title here</a>
          <?php endif; ?>
        <?php endforeach; ?>
<?php endif; ?>

see above and make the necessary changes in the same file. Note: it will be preferable if you can override this file.
