Basic questions: Is rosegarden the (correct) tool to edit/doctor midi files?
Whats the best resource to get into midi jargon like track, channel etc?
And then map it onto rosegarden?

Hi, sorry if this is obvious to you, but just in case, you'd
probably need a soundfont (like fluidr3) and a soundfont player (like
qsynth) to have sound - maybe rosegarden has a built-in soundfont
player?

No, it doesn't. That's what qsynth, whysynth or Timidity (if you ca=

Anyway you should be able to make it output the midi of the
track to qsynth (using qjackctl), and therefore have sound.

RG 11.11.42 just automatically connects.

I use RG mostly for scores. Bringing in a MIDI file usually requires some c=
leanup. For one thing, RG prefers contrapuntal compositions to have a separ=
ate track for each of the melodies, while lots of MIDIs from the web have a=
ll the melodies on the same track.
