It clicks down like a mouse button, such as when you have to select something or move your cursor. But the "button" of the trackpad can do more than that.
The trick is to tap on it with two fingers instead of one. The first few times you try it will feel uncomfortable, but you will quickly get used to it. For example, if you want to scroll, slide two fingers up and down or along the trackpad, depending on the direction you are scrolling.
Regarding right-clicking on Chromebook, just use the same fingers to click down once on the trackpad. depending on where you clicked, you will see a menu – usually generated by right-clicking – where you can normally browse through.
