I have used Delphi with Sybase which is or was virtually identical to MS-SQL at this level at least.  I don't remember ever needing to use SQL cursors directly in Delphi apps (since Delphi does it for you) but I frequently used them in SQL triggers and stored procedures.  If that is what you want to do, here is a brief (and somewhat silly) example from a stored procedure:

 declare @custid numeric(9,0)
 select @custid = 12345
 declare @oid    numeric(9,0)
 declare mycursor cursor for
     select order_id from orders where cust_id = @custid
 open mycursor
 fetch mycursor into @oid
 while (@@sqlstatus = 0)
   begin
     /* do something with the data such as insert  
        into another table */
     insert into custorders values (@custid,@oid)

     /* move the cursor to the next row of the result */
     fetch order_cursor into @oid
   end
 close mycursor
 deallocate cursor mycursor
