Hi and welcome to the OSM ecosystem! :-)

You might want to get an overview of what is possible (in short: nearly everything...) at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Using_OpenStreetMap and then ask more precise questions - with a more specific title. Depending on what you mean by "identify" the overpass API may be helpful to you to produce a dynamic overlay or render your own (overlay) tiles. Regarding permission to use: see https://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright .

Also please note that this help site is focused on clear questions, not discussions or collaborative work on whatever projects - other places are better suited for this (see FAQ).
