Home world:

"When a player logs on to Guild Wars 2 for the first time they are asked to select a home world. This is the world the player represents in World versus World PvP. How well the world plays WvW determines the bonuses the player receives from the power of the Mists. This is the only advantage to world selection and WvW is the only game type which prevents players from different worlds playing together.

Changing to another home world will cost 1,800 Gems and can only be done once every seven days. In addition, after changing to a new home world, players will lose their power of the Mists bonuses until the beginning of the next World versus World match."

Guesting:

"Players will be able to visit other worlds as guests as long as they have friends on those worlds. This feature is free, but guest players will not be able to enter World versus World PvP and the power of the Mists bonuses from their home world will continue to apply to their characters."

*chuckles*  no, I don't think so.   But...  you can join more than one guild.  We'll have to look into what all that entails.

i just found this here (emphasis mine):

Perhaps one area where there has been the most confusion is in the matter of servers. Many players have concerns over the effect on them if they cannot roll on the same server as their guilds or friends. Here are the effects you'll come across if you do not manage to roll on your guilds chosen server:

- You will be able to join your guild if you are in a different region or on a different server by using the guesting mechanic.
- You will be able to PvE (guesting) and sPvP together, no matter what server you roll on, as long as your servers are in the same region (US & US/EU & EU).
- Guild chat and mail all work even if you are on a different server.
- You will be able to play with EU players if you live in the US (and vice versa).
- You will not be able to WvW with your guild if you are on a different server.


so, that's pretty awesome!  still, i'm sure we'd all like to be on the same server for mass chaos battles of craziness.  :)
