So if the processor speed is at 1GHz, underclocking it would mean changing it to run at say 800MHz and overclocking it would mean changing it to run at say 1.2GHz.
Underclocking would allow it to not use as much power and use less battery, thus u would having longer battery usage before needing to charge it but slowing things down a bit. Overclocking would make it run faster, more pep to it but use more power and run a bit hotter, thus using more battery and such.
You try and find a good balance between the speed and battery life and keep the heat in mind too. For most users, the stock settings are more than adequate.
Hope this helps. :-)
