Orb will use the settings of the comp lights, but it won't cast any real shadows nor  does it actually have emissive surfaces. Refer to Andrew's tutorials.

Creating shadows with ORB is very complicated but it can be done if you jump through some hoops. As Myleniuum said, go through everything Andrew teaches about ORB over at Video Copilot. I've been using AE for a very long time and it took me about 2 hours to figure out how to efficiently use ORB for more than a single sphere. Go through everything you can find here: https://www.videocopilot.net/orb/
