What effect does stellar equilibrium have on stars?

The properties of a main-sequence star can be understood by considering the various physical processes occurring in the interior. First is the hydrostatic balance, also called hydrostatic equilibrium. This determines the density structure of the star as the internal pressure gradient balances against the force of gravity.

Stellar equilibrium relies on fusion and gravity to maintain stars in their current form?

Yes, a stable star is in equilibrium, called hydrostatic equilibrium, when the outward pressure from heat caused by core fusion processes balances the inward pull of gravity. There are other factors which alter the form of stars such as their rotation or gravity from external sources such as a nearby mass.
