I bought a really cheap usb dongle and am wondering if it is possible for me to connect it to my Uno without any extra hardware.
 If not is there a minimum circuit I could use with it?
I am thinking that I could just mount a usb socket on a piece of veroboard  and wire it up.

Being a USB host is non-trivial.

Can it be connected as a client then? Or is that asking too much as well?

As you can probably guess I know little about this smiley-sad

My other thought is can I open it up and access the bluetooth device some other way

you'd be better off buying a bluetooth RS232 board from deal extreme for 6$, and hooking all of 4 wires to your arduino.
