I’m on the verge of buying 2 OG HomePod’s. But I’m also considering 2 shelf speakers with a receiver.

I like the Dolby Atmos feature the Homepods bring with them.

Is a pair of OG Homepods going to give you an immersive sound experience? Anyone here with a pair of OG Homepods?

You'll need the 2021 Apple TV 4K. The older one will not do it.
Here is a how to guide. Even the guide says "The HomePod is a great speaker, but it wasn’t designed for TV use. Even with that Atmos-boost, it isn't ever going to rival a dedicated TV speaker with Dolby Atmos..."

But then it should sound better than 2 bookshelf speakers and a receiver.

You'll need to get your HomePod purchase done quick as Apple has discontinued them and are selling their remaining stock.

I personally have no experience with these.
