Banh trang chuoi (banana rice papers) - how to prepare?

I picked up a package of these in the Vietnamese grocery store - they resemble the round dried rice paper sheets used to assemble Cha Gio (spring rolls) except they have dried banana incorporated in them.
How do I prepare them? Should I dip in hot water to soften, like I would with the regular rice sheets?
How are they meant to be eaten? Does one spread chocolate or Nutella on them and eat as one would a crepe, or does one stuff 'em with ?fruit? How are they traditionally used? I've Googled but can't find any information, let alone recipes.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
