Wouldn't the easiest way be to have your voice track as Track 1 the
other person as Track 2, then simply use the "Gain" feature to gain up
when you talk and back down when finished and the same for the other

And yes, once the tracks are aligned, lock them in relation to each other.

I have done a similar thing a few times, once when I was recording a
live show my main recorder ran out of space, I had to start a new
file, it took about 10 seconds, so I had to splice in that 10 seconds
from a backup recorder...it worked perfect.

does that help?
