How do you use the time capsule as an external wireless drive?
I am trying to store some files on my external hard drive and I am wondering how to do this. Do I drag the files into Time Machine backups when that shows up or do I put them in the shared drive?

You put them in a shared drive, or folder.
You can create a folder on your time machine the same way you would create one on your desktop or elsewhere. You find the time machine in 'finder', click on it, click 'Command-Shift-N' to create a new folder. Name the folder the same way you would any other. Now you can drag whatever files you want into that folder and access them wirelessly.
