Confused With The Rings of Power Can't Post

1. The Elven Rings were not touched by Sauron, so does this mean that if Galadriel, Elrond and Gandalf wore them if Sauron found the One Ring he could control them (but I thought it was free from his influence) or perhaps he could just see their thoughts?

2. What gave the rings of power their power? Sauron's power? If he never touched the 3 Elven Rings, how can he wield influence over it?

3. Why was Elrond's Ring the mightiest? What made it mightier?

4. If Sauron was so powerful, why does he even need the ring to subdue the others? If he could even float as some kind of spirit even with a great portion of his power gone, why can't he just put under his spell the kings and elves he wants to subdue...it's not like he needs to follow the rules of the Valar like Gandalf or Saruman at the time?

thanks for the input...
