I dont know your mixer personally but from a quick look at the manual it appears it acts as an audio interface too. Unless you set up an aggregate device in your Audio/Midi setup you will only ba able to address 1 interface at a time so your Edirol interface seems to me to be surplus to requirements.

As long as you have the correct drivers installed once you plug in your USB mixer it should show up in the A/M setup as an available interface and so also appear in whichever application you are using for recording/programming. Then just plug your speakers into the control room outputs on your mixer and you should be good to go.

No need. The speakers should only be connected to the Control Room output - the idea being that you can mute them should you need to record something with a microphone.
