Newbie question, VST piano solo with elements 8.5

I want to perform piano pieces on my Avant Grande N3, record as MIDI files onto a Zip drive, Load that into elements 8.5, Running on Mac OS 10.11 with adequate RAM, memory, etc, do some note editing and pour it into Garritan’s Abbey Road CXF grand for the finished project to publish. This is ALL I want to do. Will elements 8.5 be sufficient?
Is there sufficient instruction available somewhere to lead me through the process?
Thanks, Reify
