LeadPencil is right that, in most good setups, you rely more on your primary than in your secondary. However, I have found that Rangers have a variety of skills that can be very beneficial to the combat-focussed classes. Just remember - your Ranger skills are there to support your choice of Dervish, NOT replace them.

It's OK. But in my opinion the dervish is a battle monk. Most of the skills are spells (except the scythe line). Even the primary attribute is about casting (well specialized towards enchantments). Well you could take stuff like apply poison (really nice with scythe) or antidote signet (dervishes have limited number condition removal skills) etc.. I hope just you aren't thinking about a bow dervish - it can be done, yet it's pathetic compared to a primary ranger or bow assassin.
