What should I do if my Chinese friend invites me to his/her house?

First and foremost, remember to take off your shoes and put on a pair of slippers to avoid staining the floor, as it can be rude (it is a custom, something cultural). And, if you bring some fruit or for example some typical Spanish food, you would give a good impression.

Once you are invited to eat, remember not to put the chopsticks stuck in the middle of the rice bowl, as it is part of a Buddhist funeral rite and is like an offering to the deceased (VERY IMPORTANT!). Also, remember to wait until everyone is ready to start eating, otherwise, it would be considered a really disrespectful action.
