Would you ask for them to help buy back the food they consumed or at least purchase a few necessary items that were used up?
Absolutely not. I would stock up on groceries before they arrived, and would go again on my own after they left. If they complained there was not enough to eat, I would offer to take them to the grocery store if there was something specific/extra they wanted, but I would not pay for it. I do think it was rude of them to ask you to go shopping ahead of time. If any of them had certain dietary restrictions, I think it would be fair of them to let you know of this ahead of time, in which case I think it would be the host's obligation to have some foods that they were able to eat in the house.
What all are guests entitled to or allowed to have in your home? Are they welcome to everything?
They can help themselves to any food that they want to eat. It's replaceable. If I had a collection of fancy wines or something (I wish), I wouldn't let them have free reign over which to drink, but I would at least give them options to choose from.
Does this change if it's family that staying with you and not merely friends?
I would be hesitant to invite rude guests for an overnight visit again, though, regardless of their being family or friends.
