'Shape armholes' is just a title describing what you are making by following the next section; it's to orient you, not an action.  It's good to know what you are doing so the directions make sense--in this case you are 'indenting' on one armhole side by slip stitching across a few stitches, and on the other by stopping short a few stitches.

Note a little farther down there is another title for another section, 'shape neck'.  Without reading the details, you will undoubtedly be doing a sort of similar thing, except you will be only working across the area from the armhole to the neck opening on one side until you get to the shoulders, stop and cut the yarn, and re-attach the yarn near where you started forming the neckline on the other side and work the other side from neckline to armhole up to the shoulders.

Edited to add a sketch to help you visualize this--I've drawn a front view, but a back view would be similar just with a shallower neckline - of course your front may be a V neck or a slightly different shape, but the concept is the same.  Up to now you've worked the bottom blue section.  Now you are working on the pink section from the armhole up, you can see you have indented the sides for the armholes.

When it tells you to start the neck shaping, you will stop working across the whole pink section, and will be working over the yellow part.  After finishing the yellow, you'll go back to the neck and work the red side up to the shoulder.  (It might be the red side versus yellow, but hopefully you get the idea)
