What's the deal with "Guest" networks that some wireless routers feature? Does that mean it creates a completely separate second network, as in nothing can be accessed from one to the other? Are regular users completely safe from anything anyone can do on the Guest network?

it depends on the router.  The definition of Guest network is that a second set of DHCP will be ran on it and those IP's are routed directly out to the internet with no access to the local network.
