Oneworld Benefits

Wondering what and how to get Oneworld benefits on LATAM for a Cusco-Lima flight. Looking at fares I see Light, Plus and Top categories. I understand I no longer need to worry about going with an upper category to avoid issues with resident / nonresident fares (yes?). So will my Lifetime AA Gold (Ruby) get me anything if I purchase the Light category fare? Seat selection possibility? Free checked bag?. One page on the site leads me to think seat selection yes bag no. If so does entry of my Advantage number automatically get me whatever or is there something else I need to do? Looks like I'd be better off with the Light fare if allowed to purchase additional items than moving to the Plus fare.

Here's the link to what AAdvantage Gold translates into for benefits as OW Ruby:

It doesn't appear that baggage allowance kicks in until the next level up, AAdvantage Platinum aka OW Sapphire

How about seat selection? Does anybody have an answer on this? I'm specifically curious about their lower level fares, like basic/light. I just spoke with LATAM and the CSR said no, but the Oneworld site implies otherwise*: "Access to preferred or pre-reserved seating
*In accordance with the policy of the airline operating the flight"

I suppose it won't necessarily change how I book this, but I'm still curious to find a definitive answer that's somehow written somewhere.

Thanks!

I should have been more clear: I'm asking about Ruby benefits.

No seat selection benefit for Ruby members, however on domestic Brazilian itineraries Ruby's get 1 add'l bag free to check in (up to 23kg).
