Sigil stones can enchant items. Each stone has it's own enchantments.
The soul stones are used to recharge enchanted items and enchant items as well. The better the gem, the larger the soul you can capture in it, the more points you have to recharge and create with.
The other stones are used to just recharge enchanted items.

Oblivion Gates will respawn, so you can always get a supply of Sigil Stones. As for Soul Stones, it depends on how far you are along in the game. If you're rather far, you may as well ditch petty and lesser soul gems, as you probably won't be running into any petty or lesser monsters.

There is a problem with Sigil stones that they do not level up with you, so if you get them at a lower level they are pretty much useless to higher level chars and if you've completed the main quest chain you cant get any more. There is a plugin that fixes that (as well as all other leveled items) but I cant remember the name of it.

To get some balance in the level of looted and found items the No Obsolete Items mod works fine.

You can also have your very own private Oblivion gate to use whenever you feel like. I haven't tested it yet, but according to piotrr it's ok.

Wait, I haven't gotten into enchanting items yet, but you can ONLY enchant items to what a sigil stone specifies? Or can you make your own item enchantments?

Yes. If you want to enchant items at your discretion you need soul gems. Those, unfortunately, have fewer charges than the sigil stones. Even a Grand Soul provides only 1600 pts.

this is what really pisses me off about Oblivion. In morrowind, you could have weapons with damage/attribute bonus that were a constant effect. In oblivion, it is by charge (thus limited). Is there a mod that makes weapons have constant effects?

not all of the weapons had constant effects, just the reallly good ones
