I think first it's worth reading this:
Understanding Home Sharing

Home Sharing allows you to share the contents of your iTunes library with any capable device on your home network.

In the case of PCs/Macs you can copy and or stream content from the shared library. If you copy content it's copied to the recipient iTunes library. e.g. to stream or copy content from the Home Shared library select it from the sidebar in iTunes on the recipient machine. You'll see the full content that's being shared out and you can interact with it just as you would if you were using the 'master' library.

In the case of mobile devices (and AppleTV) you can't copy content you can just stream it. e.g. to stream from a shared library you go to the Music or Video app on your iPhone. Touch 'More...' and then 'Shared'. Now you'll be able to select your Phone or your Home Shared Library.
