I'm not sure how to change between different coord sys, so I'm not sure what you mean exactly.

When I select the object itself the gizmo points in the correct orthographic directions, and the gizmo is also aligned correctly when I select faces, but when I select vertexes and lines the gizmo tilts and I basically cant do anything.

And this is happening to every object in the scene now.

You seem to have your coordinate system set to local. Look for the drop down list near the move icon in the toolbar and set it to "view" when in subobject mode.
