My LOTR knowledge is a little rusty, but isn't Sauron the only one able to use the one ring?

The One Ring gives powers and abilities according to the bearer's stature. Hobbits and the like are naturally stealthy and quiet, this invisibility along with seeing into the Wraith world. A Elf wearing it would probably gain great strength of arms and the will to attack and defeat almost anything. (Elves always slightly see into the wraith world.) In the hands of a Maiar like Gandalf or Saruman they would then possess something near to Sauron's level of power over the world and living things.

Anyone can use the rings of power. The one ring can be used for longevity, invisibility, power to influence, etc. The only thing that Sauron can do with it that others can not is command the other rings of power.

No, the ring is why Gollum turned into whatever he was, why he lived 500 years, why Bilbo and Frodo also lived fro so long, it was why they all had good luck in their years. The ring also corrupts you through the power you have, the more power the faster and more terrible the corruption.

It can not do everything but it can do a lot.

They do a terrible job at explaining things in the Movies; read the books.

there is a difference between not knowing something about a fandom and not knowing about tolkien and that the LOTR movies are based off of books

I advise to not let that discourage you. I am an active Tolkien fan, and I highly recommend that you read the books if you have the patience for it. First time reading Tolkien, you'll discover that he's a demanding writer. He gives emphasis on description, but that is what makes Middle Earth so real. The Hobbit would be an excellent introduction, especially because it might start off as a children's book, but it grows to be something greater than that. I once got so hooked on the books I read return of the king in a day, fun times xD But yeah, anyway, if you're into high fantasy (btw Tolkien is considered the father of high fantasy), you should read the books. The movies weren't bad, actually, I've seen books getting way worse movie adaptations. The casting was brilliant at some points, but you should never expect movies to live up to the book standards anyway.

Or about the award winning book series that's been out for almost 60 years.
