For a WMI object, I can list all the values for an oject with this;
get-WmiObject win32_bios -comp server | Select-Object *

what is the command to have powershell list all the attributes (CN, sid, etc...) for a group?
what is the command to have powershell list all the attributes (CN, sid, etc...) for a user?
how does this change if I wanted to ask it about an AD user or group?

You could try some of the ones below. I'm not actually near an AD environment at the moment, but from memory one of these should do the trick.

$objUser = [ADSI]"LDAP://cn=userid,ou=useraccountsou,dc=test,dc=lab"
$objUser | format-list *
 
$objGroup = [ADSI]"LDAP://cn=groupname,ou=groupsou,dc=test,dc=lab"
$objGroup | format-list *
 
$searcher = new-object directoryservices.directorysearcher
$searcher.pagesize = 999
$searcher.filter = "name=groupname"
$searcher.FindAll() | Foreach-Object {$_.Properties | fl *}

the easy way to get the DN was with the DS command;
dsquery user domainroot -name *smith
dsquery group domainroot -name *smith
