Default DX geotherm explanation please?

I'm curious...

Could you folks that are up on DX explain to me how the DX system creates heat in the pipe that is inserted into the ground and how deep... what size pipe? What are the down falls of a DX system? maintainance issues if any?

Are you putting freon inside the copper pipe?
If so how are you transferring that heat to your heat pump?
Side by side heat exchanger piping?

Is the main objective on a DX system to assist your existing heat pump during heating or cooling times?

How perfect does everything have to be for it to run without issues?

Thanks in advance!
