So essentially a lower offset will give me a wheel which extends further out from the arch (roughly the same effect as a spacer) and a higher offset will give for a more tucked away wheel?
Yes, same effect as spacers.

Offset is the distance from where the wheel sits on the hub of the car to the middle of the wheel.
So when the offset is higher, the distance to the middle of the wheel is longer i.e. the wheels sits more tucked.
