Frodo had a Will, Sam had a Will, etc The reason for the change in Gollum's look centers around the performance of Andy Serkis in Two Towers and Return of the King.Gollum's appearance in Fellowship of the Ring was designed as no more than an introduction to the character, and Serkis didn't get the chance to fully explore the character yet. His role was expanded upon quite a bit later on, allowing Serkis to make the character his own It was a decision in the movie to compress the timeframe of the events.

Tom then put the Ring on his finger, yet not only did he not disappear, but the Ring appeared to have no effect on him at all. After making the Ring itself vanish with a sleight-of-hand trick, he returned it to Frodo, who, slightly suspicious that it had not made Tom vanish, put it on to make sure it was the genuine Ring Gollum is afraid of the light after so many years living under the misty mountains so it takes some time before he leaves them to search for the ring.

Most likely Tom could have returned the Ring to Mordor (and Sauron) — just as Gandalf could have, or Aragorn, or Galadriel, or Boromir, or Faramir. Sam was already there. But would Barliman have made a better Ring-bearer than Frodo? For that matter, would Legolas or Gimli
Gollum lived with the ring for years without severe effects except the wasting/stretching because Sauron wasn't looking for it - it was presumed destroyed by Isuldur. The ring only became severely toxic when Gollum was captured in Mordor and Sauron learned it had been found What we need to remember is that Frodo did not give up the ring voluntarily.
