can you get the benefits of this item (the passive ones) by equipping it in one of your offhand slots? can you also get them by two-handing a weapon and having this in your left/right hand?
No the Ladle only applie the bonuses when you have it on hand.
Having this sheathed (must be visible on character) while two-handing another weapon allows you to gain the passive attribute bonuses (+1 VIT, +1 END, +2 ADP) and penalty (-1 DEX). Confirmed on my end.

I think it works only when on hand
I literally just tested this, if it is in say, the 3rd left slot, and you are using an item in the 1st or 2nd left slot, the bonus is not gained, but if you two-hand while the 3rd left slot is selected, the bonus is gained.
Ymfah, nail'd it.
