If you mean splitting a region, there are a couple of ways to do it.
But I am not sure if you mean that, your description sounds like your are 
actually just deleting a region. Splicing could also mean making 2 regions go 
tail-to-front without any space in between.
pressing s will split the region under the cursor at the cursor point, taking 
into account snap settings
alt-s will split selected regions at the edit-cursor.
There are quite a few more shortcuts documented at 
or look in  your ~/.ardour/ardour.rc 

For the butting regions against each other, you can use the snap-to 
region-ends and snap-to-region-starts and snapto-region-bounds.
The last one is still a little buggy.
Note the ardour will only look at the regions in the selected track.

There is also a shuffle-mode. Unfortunately that has limited functionality, 
and will simply put all the regions in a track sequentially. (unless you lock 
some of them of course)
(I have in my head a model of how it should be done, (just like in protools)
but that won't be added untill after we release ardour-V1 and then the port to 
gtk-2 that will be called ardour-2)


The fade-in and -out curves can be set from the popup region editor.
The can be dragged by their handles at the region top.
The can be made active unactive by right-clicking and selecting that option.
