Can someone explain to me how this is used or could be useful in either pvp or pve. Also if this is recommended for pvp or pve.

I've used stealth as Batman and Robin in Legends PVP, it's not really helpful, but it's can be neat to use.

Disguise only works outside of arenas and legends. You can surprise players equal or lower than your level as they are questing or whatever.

So when stealth is active are you invisible or do you just look different

You'll turn invisible with stealth. Disguise will turn you into a civilian or scientist.

What do the Stealth boosts from weapon trees do? Make it harder for you to be knocked out of stealth?

IIRC it's just make you harder to detect by players a few levels higher than you, but it can be counter with the iconic passive power, X-ray vision, which makes the users detect players using stealth

It's useful for solo leveling or if you have friends with patience but I find the slow pace of it a little boring. As for end game, I don't think it would have much use.

As SwiftStar says, if you have a mental controller, then disguise is surprisingly useful for leveling. While it limits your movement, it has a very powerful stun spell (sleep) and a one-shot crit hit that wipes out 2/3 or more of most NPCs health bar before exposing your normal self. Disguises come with their own load bars, but only the sleep power can be used without dropping you out of your disguise. I've used it even up to the level of doing Gorilla Island alert, and the stun spell still works.

It probably diminishes in usefuleness after you get to 30, but since it is in the branch leading to other controller powers, it's worthwhile getting.
