Here's my attempt:

What does Audacity do? Would it be helpful in my above recording activity?

Qsynth plays soundFont banks (sf2). More often then not, these would contain
sound libraries (banks) with sounds ordered following the MIDI standard
(Pianos, basses, strings etc ). These sf2 fonts can be either downloaded for
free from Internet (http://tinyurl.com/ycnkkal) or purchased (
http://tinyurl.com/yaeo4d9). Bad, good and better imitations of real
instruments, basically.
ZynAddSubFX generates its own sounds using sophisticated tone-generators.

Jamin is a Mastering program. Once you have recorded your midis on
Rosengarden using either Qsampler for soundfonts or ZynAddSubFX as sound
engines, and you have composed your drums in Hydrogen, and recorded your
vocals/guitars in Ardour, you want to make a nice balance of the recording,
and even it out dynamically and frequency-wise (make a Master recording). So
you run all those apps through jamin, and record its output as a track in
say, Ardour. You put this track in GCDMaster to get it ready for burning on
disk.
Jamin has a compressor and EQ, GCDMaster doesn't.

> and also between Timemachine and Ardour?

Time machine is a basic recorder of everything that goes in or out of jack.
Ardour is a multi-track recorder, DAW.
