What legal value has the flight manifest? I guess it shows the identity someone boarded with but beyond that what's its value?

Which country would accept it as proof of ID for any passenger, let alone one who's probably a foreigner, who wants to enter the country?

They're covered by legislation and best practice procedures. Identification of a passenger wishing to enter the US is carried out repeatedly from the initial booking process, through to visa application or the Visa Waiver programme, and to the final flight manifest. At any point in that process, the US can refuse entry to a passenger.
