you should be able to edit any file you import into GB, however GB is not the best choice for what you are trying to do. use an Audio Editor for, well, editing audio:
I agree that if you want to edit a stereo track, use an Audio Editor. Use Audacity, for a free Editor that works well.
If you want to edit it in GarageBand, you can convert your Orange region to a Purple one by holding down Control/Option-G, and clicking anywhere on the Timeline.
Thanks for that - I have now spent the weekend learning to use Audacity and it certainly is a better tool for what I was trying to do.
I am a little surprised that this is not an Apple iLife (particularly Garage Band) tool as I would have expected that plenty of people would edit audio files rather than simply create music from scratch.
Anyhow, thanks again. I can now do what I want.

right tool for the right job.
when you write software that does everything, it generally does everything at a mediocre level.
Music Creation tools create music, Audio Editors edit audio.
GB happens to be great at what it is purposed for, workable, not not the best choice, for things for which it wasn't designed to do as a main function.
good luck with Audacity
