I have a rook, a queen and my king while my opponent has only 2 pawns and a king left.

The situation is complicated because they cannot move anything, except for a single pawn move. But if they move that pawn their king is checked by my queen. Is this situation stalemate or checkmate?

If the situation is as in the diagram below, it is stalemate. You correctly noticed that white has no legal moves: any potential move would put the white king into check, which is not allowed. Furthermore in the position the white king is not attacked, so it is stalemate (not mate).
