After installing Google Chrome and setting it as default, you'll find that it's available on the menu under the Search box. Enter a search term and your request goes to the default search engine in Chrome (which doesn't have to be Google).
The Windows 8 version of Chrome responds correctly to the Windows Settings charm. Clicking that charm opens this pane, and clicking Settings here opens the familiar Chrome page on the left.
From the Windows 8 Mail app (or from People or Calendar) you can connect your Google account. Click the Settings charm and then click Accounts to see this set of options, which includes Google. (You can connect multiple Google accounts.)
