Does this only work by replicating the whole mesh, or can you use it for replicating parts on the mesh to say like the opposite site of the same mesh? If not, then I can't think of any purpose to this modifier.

    The mirror modifier replicates the entire mesh, you cannot pick and choose elements. The most common use for it is for creating symmetrical objects, such as a character's face or a vehicle. This enables you to only model one half. It's actually one of the most commonly used modifiers in many workflows.
