Fave things to make with mushrooms (specifically, Shitake and Oyster, but open to more). Also, how do these compare with Cremini?

So I have a recipe that asks for Cremini mushrooms. I was at the market and no one had any. So I bought some Oyster and some Shitake. Can I use these instead? What will the difference be? In addition, can these suckers be eaten raw? Do I eat the whole thing? Just the head? Just the stem? (Yes, I'm a complete mushroom newbie.)
Also, since we're on the Fungi... what are your fave recipes for mushrooms?
