I see alot of sites that say "Powered by Wordpress" or "powered by xxxxxx Wordpress theme"....something like that.

OK I know it's used for "themes" but is it like a html code generator or something?

Example: if I want to put a blog n my site, where would Wordpress come into play on that?

Wordpress is a content management tool used for creating a blog. It's written in php and gives you an interface to add and edit posts. You can download word press, and it gives you instructions on how to set it up. Try it out using something like xampp.

WordPress started as just a blogging systems, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination. (And tech chops.)
You'll also find a nice summary of WordPress on the WordPress wikipedia page.
