    You put the Gameshark in, the N64 game plugs in on top, you turn codes on then start the game.
    You can probably find videos on YouTube showing the process.

    Not sure about versions or whatnot.
    Used for pretty much all games.

    Like Gore said, +

    You should get the one with the latest version number possible (I think that was 3.3, could be wrong). If you're getting it with box, it has a sticker on the back. If you're getting it loose, don't know what to tell you.

    The earlier versions had problems with some games, most notably Zelda. The later versions fix the problems. Back in the day, they were giving you the new version for really cheap if you had the old. Doubt they do that anymore, of course.
