I usually go swimming with my best friend and his rather unusual girlfriend
I - personal pronoun - countable (I is the subject in this sentence)
usually - adverb (indicates frequency)
go - Verb ( indicates movement)
swimming - Noun. (the act of swimming) Or is it the adjective ??
with - Preposition. (implies accompanying)
my - Possessive adjective. (of or relating to ‘me’)
best - Comparative adjective..
friend - Common noun
and - Conjunction (joins sentence elements)
his - Possessive pronoun. (the possessive form of ‘he’)
rather - adverb. (to a degree)
unusual - adjective. (describes a state outside of usual / a degree of usual)
girlfriend - Compound noun. ( a girl and a friend)

I'm glad you got your answers to post.
All are correct, including "swimming." :-) It's a noun in this sentence.
Of course, "girlfriend" is a noun, one of the objects of the preposition "with."
