So my Xbox can be the home Xbox for multiple other people?
No, only one console.
Is it possible to gameshare a game that has been Gameshared with you.
Nope as you don't have the rights to the account.

Yes, as that new account's home xbox is the console you're using.

If I want to gameshare GTA with someone do I have to give them the login info for the account that I bought the game with or can It be a different account that is on my Xbox?

Always the one that purchased it, if you are already homed on someone else's xbox they won't have the games anymore if you do it to a different person.

What?

From my experience, you can make an account home AND THEN change the password for the account and it'll still work. I done this to my nephew as he kept logging in to my account when I was playing. as long as you don't try and make the account home to another XB1, you should be fine.

"Set his Xbox One as your Home Xbox. You then set your Xbox One as his Home Xbox. You are now sharing games"
i.e. - Every game he buys I have and every game I buy he has?

Also, why do you say " I don't recommend trying to do this with people online". Do you mean you dont recommend doing this with strangers ?

Ive been game sharing with one of my friends but I was under the impression you can only have game sharing one way. I never new we could both make each others Xbox's our homes.

1) Yes, you can play all the games on the account that has your xbox as home.
2) Yes, don't do with random kids
3)Yes you can set eachothers profiles to eachother's consoles and get both games.

No you don’t have to. Your account is set home on their console so they can play any of your games. You don’t need to be playing with them
