    You can activate Frodo, Sauron's Bane's abilities regardless of what creature types it is. Each of those abilities checks Frodo's creature types when that ability resolves. If Frodo, Sauron's Bane isn't the appropriate creature type at the time, that ability does nothing.

    If the creature you choose as your Ring-bearer was already your Ring-bearer, that still counts as choosing that creature as your Ring-bearer for the purpose of abilities that trigger "whenever you choose a creature as your Ring-bearer" or abilities that care about which creature was chosen as your Ring-bearer.
