How much different is your practice rig versus your live or jamming rig. Most of us have big time volume limits when playing at home due to spouses or parents.

Typically when playing at home it's just my GuitarPort but lately I've been playing more through the Fender Champ with a Tube Screamer at low volume.

Haven't played with a band in year but when I head over to a friends or am jamming with some folks its the Dean Markley RM40 with a Rockman Chorus, Rockman Delay and a Tube Screamer.

What do your rigs look like.

I used my Boss GT-6 processor ( which I find complicated)
and a peavey preamp tied to my ol' peavey Marshall half stack. Also what I really find myself going back to is an older Digitech RP-3 effects unit. My guitars are The wolfgang, a couple Jacksons (soloist, Dinky dk2 with Eerie dess swirl finish) a Les Paul Studio some Ibaneze S series and some Kramers.

I've got a PV Classic 100 half stack, a Solo Series PV Bandit and a Yamaha DG Stomp. These give the ability to play rip roaring loud to bedroom quiet and I have most tones in the spectrum available at the same time. It just depends on what components I want to combine or if I just want to go direct.

Well it depends on lots of factors...

If you're an amp/pedals kind of guy you probably just switch amp between stage and room.

If you're a rack guy you probably have a multi-fx/modeller unit for practicing.

If you use an amp modeller/multi-fx as your live rig you just have to create patches with the right EQ for headphones or small amp use.

Once you understand acoustics (search for Fletcher-Munson frequency response curves) it's fairly easy to understand what kind of EQing you need to do in order to maintain tone at different perceived volumes/sound pressure levels. Of course preamp gains also need to be adjusted when using tube power sections.
