That player is called the "libero". They are a defensive player, and there are some limitations on what they are allowed to do:

-they are not allowed to serve

-they may no attack the ball (spiking the ball if it's above the plane of the net)

-they may not come within 3m of the net (there's a line there called the "attack line") and use their hands to set an attacker.

They are allowed to come in for any player though. Volleyball substitutes can normally go in/out for one player.
