Does this mean, if I am using a device that is on the network, my computer appears to that device to be thier on the local network, and able to access that device ?

A router-based VPN implies two or more networks that are interconnected via an encrypted tunnel over an insecure medium, such as the Internet. Your computer would remain on your local network, but you would see the local network on the other end, and they would see you. For example:

network > VPN tunnel over the Internet> network
