Default getting started with recording/mixing

i have pro tools 7.4 m-powered and an m-audio jamlab USB device connecting my guitar to my PC for playing/recording.

i'm new to pro tools and the whole home studio/mixing/recording setup, so hopefully all of this makes sense..

i want to be able to record a number of guitar tracks and then put them together as one track (i'm not sure if that's referred to as mixing or multitrack recording).

i would also like to add a drum track to the combined guitar track so that i have a single audio track that includes my guitar recordings and drum track.

first, is this possible with the setup that i have?

second, if adding the drum track is doable, is it possible to edit the drum track?

any help is greatly appreciated.

Late to this thread. Got to check these forums more! While some Youtube videos are great, not all are. For mixing I found these very good

Mixing pop in pro tools is real nice.
I'm a happy subscriber at macprovideo.com. and their current offer is 25% discount on subscription. Highly recommend it at full price and this is even better value -
