Are they like gems in diablo II, where you can insert gems into things?
If not... then what are they for?

A weapon + An orb of equivalent level to the 2 hander will almost always give you more benefit than just using a 2 hander...

Well they tend to give you flat damage and useful stats/slots, and 2 handers tend to attack slower (and attack speed affects casting speed)

So I just keep them in my inventory, or they have to be equipped with certain weapons? Not following here.

They're an offhand item, like a voodoo doll, a quiver or a shield
