I want to use Orbot on my phone as a proxy server for my desktop or any computer on my local network. How/can I set Orbot up to let me do this?

Go to Orbot->settings. Scroll down until you find "debug".There is option called "Torrc Custom config". Click on it,enter ip and port using this command: SOCKSPort <localIP>:9050

You can try enabling the tethering mode, if your device is rooted. It should enable the SOCKS proxy to be bound to the interface, which means other devices can see it on the network. If you know the IP address of your device, you can find the SOCKS proxy at port 9050.
