No, ISO does not give you "better" or "more" light. It simply increases the camera's sensitivity to light. Same thing with increasing aperture size or lowering shutter speed.

Hmmmm. No.  Raising ISO is NOT the same as increasing aperture or shutter speed.  In digital cameras, ISO is virtual electronic processing that has no effect on the amount of light entering the camera.  It only effects, as you say, the sensor's sensitivity to register whatever light is present.  Aperture and shutter speed are mechanical actions that can actually let in more light.
