I (still) have a landline, so I can't test this and was hoping someone else could answer the question....

With multiring, what happens if you call the ooma number FROM the other (multiring) number? For example, if I set up multiring to also call my cell phone, what happens when I call home (ooma number) from my cell phone? Does it try to also ring my cell phone?

With Vonage, I couldn't use their "Simulring" service because of this. When I called home from my cell phone, it would also ring my cell phone. My cell phone carrier then would see a call from my cell phone to my cell phone, and send me right to voicemail to check new messages. (That is one way to check VM from a cell phone - call yourself!)

What does ooma do? Is it smart enough to see that I'm actually calling FROM the multiring number and NOT try to call the multiring number?

Yes, we are "smart enough" to not ring your cell phone. I'm surprised Vonage does what it does. That could potentially create a nasty routing loop (if you had your cell phone forwarded to your home phone).
