    Exactly how it says it works in the PHB2, beginning on page 191.

    That section of the book was the biggest waste of space that I've ever seen in a published rulebook. Here, I'll briefly paraphrase the entire 6-page section in one concise sentence:

    "If your DM says it's cool, you can switch out things on your character sheet for things of equal or lesser value."

    There. That's the whole thing. It's the same crap that DM's have been doing since 1st Edition, but now I can read all about the power that I, as a DM, always had before. Only now, it's enumerated in 6 pages of dense, turgid mechanics that are implicitly encapsulated by Rule 0. What a damnable waste of paper.
