Audacity is freeware so what you see is what you get. All functions are enabled from the get go.

If your recording is distorted to start with then there is nothing you can do about it I'm afraid. You'll just have to do it again.

try goldwave http://www.goldwave.com/ there is a free one, u should be able to up the file in there and use the eq settings to tweek it a lil but i doubt u will get it sounding perfect but it might help a little! although u might be able to re record ur mix in the same time it takes u to fook around with it all!

You just have to turn you gains down and keep trying it untill you get a decent recording, then remeber what the output it on your mixer an you'll be able to get a decent recording everytime... But messing with the eq on a distorted mix aint gonna do anything.

IF you record it distorted then can't really resirect it tbh.. Just record it again with the levels down a bit ;).. Gives you an excuse to have a mix eh!
