      His mortal body could feel pain and other sensations, thats the whole point of their restrictions and mission. He did need to eat, drink and sleep as Gandalf.

      According to Tolkien he did need to eat and drink, though it was probably a lot less pressing than it was for mortals or even elves for that matter.

      He in fact did have to eat and sleep, because the Istari were locked into the form of a man. He would not age, but they did have the sensations of men, which is part of the reason Saruman went bad, he hated the slow passage of time for men and looked for shortcuts, and his envy of Gandalf got worse and worse over time.

      Anyway, Gandalf would never have trouble finding food and a bed, everyone liked him and he was always on the move making friends all over the place.

    Even though Gandalf is guised as a mortal man, the Elves instantly figured out his true nature, and they realized as a result that he was a Big Fricking Deal. So they knew to treat him with respect and courtesy when he came to call on them; and from the Elves the word on how to treat Gandalf came to the Men of Gondor, then to the Men of Rohan, then to the Dwarves.

    It's also notable that Gandalf helps people out a lot. The Hobbits love him as much as they do because he helped them out during a terrible winter centuries before LOTR's events. And they love his fireworks displays. He's constantly giving advice, counsel, guidance, and help, and that buys you a lot of goodwill in a place like Middle-Earth.

      That's basically the reason he was sent at all, Manwe had to order him to go because he feared Sauron and didn't want to, but Manwe saw his good nature would serve him well in combatting Sauron's machinations. Same reason Cirdan gave him Narya when he met Gandalf, he sensed he would need its strength in inspiring the peoples of Middle-Earth.

            It's part of the ludonarrative dissonance, the "everyone has a wizard" problem. It's like, Gandalf can create light, so why does anyone in Middle Earth need to carry torches or lanterns around? Because most people don't have a Gandalf. But when you translate that into game terms, everyone wants to be or at least have a wizard in their party, so the world becomes "oops all wizards" and if you inspect the economy too closely it throws a wrench into previously held assumptions you took for granted.

            Star Wars, for instance, is the same way. Jedi are rare, or are in the mainline original films. But they're the heroes everyone grows up worshiping, so everyone imagines themselves as a Jedi, and when they make a game out of it, and offer you a choice "Would you rather a Bounty Hunter, a Moisture Farmer, or a Jedi?" 99% of people pick Jedi, and then you have ten million dweebs all running around faithfully spinning their lightsabers like morons.

      Your post is an extreme simplification and reduction. There’s way more to it than that. The two blue wizards were working behind the scenes with Saruman, who also went east, early on thousands of years before the events of LOTR. Radagast likely helped keep an eye on things using birds as his spies.

      You know, thinking about it, what the frick happened to the other three Istari after the Ring was destroyed? Saruman gets murked by Wormtongue after fricking up the Shire. Gandalf sails back to Valinor with Frodo, Bilbo, and Galadriel. We never hear what became of Radagast or the two Blue Wizards.

        Presumably they eventually returned to Valinor as well, unlike Saruman who was denied a return and was left formless and powerless in Middle-Earth for eternity. If the two Blues were even still around anyway. Radagast would eventually have left for home of his own accord I'm assuming.
