I've read tons of advice on how to sync iCal on my mac with iCal on my iPhone via Google, but I'm still confused. Could a patient explainer explain to me how it works?

Apparently, both iCals can be synced using gCal as an intermediary. What I can't visualize is how it works in two directions at once. I was hoping someone could walk me step by step what happens when I make an update on one calendar and it propagates to the others? What happens if they conflict?
I stumbled into this in the context of trying to figure out how to view on the iphone the carefully-color-coded subcalendars I have on iCal on my mac, while only syncing via wi-fi. Is there a way to have, for example, bill deadlines in red on both calendars? (If it matters, I am using Snow Leopard and iOS 4.2.1.)
