I've never used it but garageband has a lot of cool features like you are looking for.

I also highly suggest audacity but that may not have all the bells and whistles you are looking for

the only problem with garageband is that you cant import a song and edit it, you can only make your own. unless i am not doing it correctly.

You can easily import practically any audio format into garageband. Just drag and drop garageband will convert .mp3 to .aif automatically and place it on the track. That said, you can't import iTunes protected formats, but I think that's the same with any program.

Like Wro Ro said, drag the music file icon onto the Garage Band track and let go of the mouse.

Navigate to the song you want to import in the Finder (for instance, something in your iTunes Music Library). If you have the Garageband window positioned beneath the Finder window so you can see it, drag the song from the Finder until it is over the GB window. A plus sign will appear next to the file name. If you then drop the song in the GB window, GB will create a new track and import the song into that track.

Alternatively, you can create a track yourself, position the Finder window so that track is visible and drag the song into that track. Or use Exposé to bring the GB window to the front. If you have an Exposé hot corner set up, the you can drag the song to it, when the windows minimise, locate the GB window and drag the file over it (don't let go!). The little flashy thing will happen and GB will come to the front. Then drop into a track you've created or just into the GB window as above.

GB sounds like it will be more than adequate for what you want to do.
