Isn't the ring practically useless except for being corrupted and a free ticket to women's locker rooms to anyone that's not Sauron?

Depends on the wearer. It basically held all the power and all the evil that Sauron invested into it while he owned it. Anyone could access the power in a portion that (I've assumed) is equal to their natural power, granted in whatever form they required. It made Frodo invisible because that's what would be the most beneficial for him. Aragorn could defeat Sauron in his form at the time, with any range of powers. Sauron, Saruman, or Gandalf would be unstoppable. It would also corrupt them faster (don't think that matters though for Saruman or Sauron though)

the ring corrupts power
power in any form
the more power something has the faster it corrupts

That's also why Frodo is granted invisibility. Hobbits are very good at sneaking, and this ability is empowered by the Ring. I think

Invisibility was a minor power of the Ring, Isildur also gained that ability. Even though sight is a major power of humanoid creatures, the Ring strengthened your other senses and weakened sight for some reason (hard to see a goal or who you once was I suppose symbolically) . Major powers were capable of overcoming the Rings power and wield it for a time, but it had a will of its own that worked constantly (picture a supercomputer being hacked/worked on for eternity by another supercomputer).

Actually, it depends on whoever is wearing it. If I remember correctly, that is why Gandalf refused to take it. A powerful being would be empowered, while a weaker creature wouldn't get as much of a boon.

I THINK this is how it went.

So if Gandalf, being one of the Istari, was corrupted by the ring could he pretty much tear Middle Earth asunder, even with his lessened powers in the realm?

It's essentially that but the ring corrupts everything. So if Gandalf took the ring he would attempt to use for good but the ring would twist what he thinks is good thus causing great harm to middle earth.

Basically yes, it's implied that if Aragorn took the ring he would be able to use it to rally mankind against sauron and win, but become a dark lord himself in the process.
