I have a turbo with a siezed wastegate, I'm sure I can unseize it with some pb blaster and movement, but would it still work properly even after I get it to move freely again?

All depends on why it seized and how badly it is seized.
If you can get it to move freely once again and do not feel any binding it should be fine.

Ok cool, I don't know why it froze, the car I got it off of looked as if it had sat a long time, so I suppose it was only rust. But I have it where it can flop around as free as the one on my car (which works), and I don't feel any binding

The only thing you do not know is if there is any rust still present or any pitting that may cause binding once the lube wears off.
I have never had one apart but if you leave it sit outside as if it were on the car for a few days recheck to see if it starts binding.
If it does not I would think you would be fine.

If you need a T1 wastegate actuator let me know.
