By default, the built-in rt73 driver is loaded and used when I plug the antenna in.
How to correctly disable this driver and use my compiled one instead ? (just blacklist ?)
Yes blacklisting is correct. But if rt73us was loaded incorrectly, rt2500usb should also have been loaded,
otherwise you should try loading that first.
Next, I'd like to put the driver in monitor mode.
What's the correct way to do so.
See 'man iwconfig' for details on how to configure wireless interfaces.
PS Probably these same questions are repeated. Maybe the readme could feature a quick Ubuntu howto

That is a public wiki, so feel free to edit it. Besides that link is maintained by Ubuntu people, not us.
