We can change breadcrumbs and the sidepane color, but what else can be edited with gtkrc-2.0?

You can change the appearance of virtually all widgets, the ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file overrides the settings of whatever Gtk theme you are using. For this reason, it usually is best to modify the theme directly (They are located in ~/.themes/ and /usr/share/themes/) or else whenever you change your Gtk theme (System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Themes -> Customize... -> Controls) it will be overridden by ~/.gtkrc-2.0.
