is it possible to use home sharing through the music app instead of the computers app? or does this require Apple Music subscription? thanks

It works, if you have "Sync library" enabled on your computer.
Your songs appear under Library in the Music app, but they will play from Apple servers, not your Home Sharing server.
Essentially, the same thing that was originally marketed as iTunes Match.

And the Home Sharers don't get the benefit of lyrics either. Apple really does not like people having their own collections.
