I beg to differ.

Gandalf aint the most powerfull man in Middle-Earth, that title goes to our merry Tom Bombadil. He's the most powerfull person or creature in Middle-Earth but refuses to go out of his forrest and to do nothing but protect his and his forrest's peace.

Bombadil, so powerful that not only does the ring have no effect on him, he is so powerful that Gandalf wouldnt have wanted Tom to keep the ring in the first place because chances were great he would have simply misplaced the ring out of carelessness because it seemed like such a small and unimportant thing.

I didn't really like him in the book because his part was a little slow and boring but I think he is one of the most interesting characters...It is nowhere explained what he is or where his powers come from right? I'd like to know...

He is one of the oldest creatures in middle earth, maybe even older than middle earth it self, not sure where and how its mentioned but I seem to recall that he is pretty damn bad ass and powerfull.

Also, I believe that Shelob had similar abilities to that of Bombadil. How she was portrayed in the films really annoyed me!

Shelob wasn't that powerful. Her mother Ungoliant however, was one of the most powerful creatures to have existed in Middle Earth and aided Melkor in the destruction of the Trees of Valinor.
But get this:
The spider was so powerful that she imprisoned Melkor (Sauron's boss) and he needed an army of Balrogs to come and set him free.

If I remember correctly, in the books he said that he doesn't leave the forest, or rarely, because he has no power outside of it.
From Wikipedia:
"Behind Bombadil's simple fa├žade are hints of great knowledge and power, though limited to his own domain."
