A great, free program to use to record is Audacity.

As for the recording process itself, you'll get the best results recording with a good quality mic in front of your amp. You can always record DI straight into your computer through an effects unit and get good results.

You gotta mute the other track while recording and have play to a metronome. Then it's just a case of mixing and EQ.

Be sure to pan guitar tracks left and right in order to space things out. Everything sounds like mush if it is all panned to the center.

There IS the Line 6 Toneport and POD series which you can use.

As for recording, mixing and panning helps a lot to make sure each instrument sounds good and sits well with the mix; you don't want the bass guitar fighting for space with the bass drum for example so you would pan and EQ them both differently.

Although bear in mind not to overpan, or it sounds too empty.

Of course, there are exceptions. Just play around see what sounds good to you.
