Not sure if you need specific ability to sync with video within the program, but Audacity is a great (and free) program for recording and basic tweaking, etc. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Well, the first part of your question is answered; onto the second part:

Unless you are planning to use the Mac's built-in mic, you will need a microphone that will work with either USB or your soundcard. Typically, an audio interface (via USB or Firewire) is used so that the usually-low-quality sound card can be bypassed. I recommend going that route - you could even hook up your speakers to it and use it for playback at a higher quality that your built-in soundcard.

Check out some of these:

Sweetwater's selection of USB mics.

You could also look around for audio interfaces - nothing fancy, a couple of mic inputs will do ya. Don't forget to buy the microphone, stand (desktop?), and cable for it.

Let us know how you fare and what you decide to do.
