There are actually three conditions. First is called an over the limit team foul ( normally a non-shooting foul away from the ball holder or basket ) but not a shooting foul until this type of foul has occurred for the fifth time in a half. Second is called a technical foul which happens when some one like Dwight Howard has a hissy fit after a disputable referee call. The third is your garden variety defensive or charging offensive foul.

If the refs make that big a mistake, then they shouldn't be reffing. That usually NEVER happens in a game. If it does, however, the proper player MUST shoot both free throws (the only time that another player who wasn't fouled can shoot is if the player fouled is injured).

What happens when a foul is committed in basketball?

When a foul is commited, you either shoot free-throws if it is in the act of shooting, or you retain possession. If the team that fouls has 7,8, or 9 fouls, you are in bonus and you shoot 1 and one (if you make the first free throw you get to shoot the other free throw and if you miss it it is up for grabs) and if the other team has 10+ fouls, you get to shoot both free throws. If the foul is in the act of shooting beyond the 3-point line, you get to shoot 3 free-throws.

Can a player come off the bench to shoot technical foul shots?

Yes, but only in a very specialized instance. Only when a double technical is called and it is the second technical foul for one of the offenders. In this case, the player with the second technical foul is ejected and both teams will shoot free throws, which is not normally the case with double technical fouls. The team without an ejected player may choose their own shooter, however, the other team can select any player on the opposing team to shoot in the place of the ejected player. This is effectively the only time a player will come off the bench to shoot free throws. The only other instance this is a possibility is when a player is injured and must leave the floor prior to technical free throws being taken.
