rename tracks BEFORE recording. region names are based on the name of the
track they were captured for at the time they were captured. there is no
long term association (allowing you to copy/move regions into other tracks
without them being renamed).

Automatically created regions (e.g. the left-overs after cropping or
separation) can be hidden. Other than that, no.

Selecting a region in the region list will select it in the session but
will not navigate to it.

The region list is pretty useless.

In general, the ardour-users mailing is a better place to ask such
