What is it "really" like to have a gifted child? What is the best way to support them at home? What learning environment is best for them (public, charter, private, or homeschool)?

The best way to support them at home is with emotional support. Although my son hasn't been tested he is very smart and does well in public school. His teacher this year has done a great job keeping him challenged. But he has some anxiety issues so I try to be supportive at home to help him cope, I also try to keep him in an activity that lets him just be a kid.

The same as it is to have a 'normal' child. Each child differs, each situation differs, and each should be allowed the best fit for them.

For some it may be mainstream public school, for others it may be more specialized private classes, a charter school will fit for some, but not all, as will homeschooling.
