The ideal usage of a spritesheet is for one sprite to display a frame of a single spritesheet frame, if you need different spritesheets from other imagefiles load them during runtime or preload them into a library. There are many ways of doing a animation system, you should explore what suits you the best, the properties you are interested to make a spritesheet work are
Hframes and Vframes specify how many frames horizontally and vertically will be used from your spritesheet, animating the frame property will actually play the animation contained in that spritesheet, and if you want only a portion of that imagefile you can use region to basically use only a piece of that imagefile.
I will exemplify that with a simple spritesheet:
This spritesheet can play a running animation in 4 directions, each animation has 1 Vframes and 4 Hframes. You can switch direction by modifying the region position and size accordingly.
Or you can use all frames, then it will become 4 hframes and 4 vframes, and you would limit the frame animation to 0-3 for a animation of walking down, 3-7 for a animation of walking left, and so on.
You can do this in GDScript too, which will become automatically once you develop a system for that, or you can do manually with the animation editor, creating a animation per direction and so on, which is more work but easier to set-up.
