You can use MKVToolnix to split the sound from the avi and most other video/audio types.
Editing of the video (at a very basic level) can be done in Windows Movie Maker http://explore.live.com/windows-live...maker?os=other
WMM still allows you to split up your video and overlay an audio track if needed (or you use MKV merge to add the audio back again.
Or, you could try VirtualDubMod its pretty much what you're describing. It can cut AVI/Video files into sections, then you can just use MKV merge to put it all back together, or use WMM to put it back together
Also, as stated by Nintendo Maniac 64, Audacity is the way to go for cutting and editing sound.
If you want to invest in some software, I can recommend Sony Vegas. I dont 'own' a copy of this per say, but a friend does.. And he's fine with me borrowing it (he got it cheap from somwhere using a student discount).. ^_~
Edit, so your todo list is::
Use MKVToolnix to seperate the audio and video stream to seperate files.
Edit the video cutting out the unwanted bits (possibly using windows movie maker) and VirtualDubMod.
Edit the Audio (to cut out unwanted sections) using Audacity, WMM or VirtualDubMod.
Recombine all your video segments into 1 video track.
Recombine all your audio segments into 1 audio track.
Merge the Audio and Video tracks using MKVToolnix.
et voila? o.o
