The tracks weren't created by themselves so you must have created the 2nd one accidentally, probably with a key command. You can click one of the track headers in the Arrange area and press Delete on your keyboard to delete that track.

So here's my problem - if I copy and chop the region to (say) use only the first bar, this new smaller 1-bar region has the same name as the original 4-bar region and I cannot find a way to edit it in the Hyper Editor area of the Arrange window. Nor can I figure out how to re-name it to something else.
Regions are named in the Arrange area, not in an editor. Click a region with the text tool to rename it.

You can only have one editor open at a time in the Arrange window, and the Hyper Editor can only display the contents of a single region at a time. Select the desired region in the Arrange area and the Hyper Editor will display its contents.
