Can anyone recommend any software which would allow me to:

(1) Fix unsychronized video and audio throughout a movie (when spoken words do not correspond with mouth movements).
(2) "Level" the sound volume throughout a movie (to avoid loud music that blasts me off the couch).
(3) Increase the voice volume, and reduce the music volume (so music does not drown out the speech).

I want to make these "edits" to full length movies which I have copied onto my HDD from my purchased DVDs (mostly "MP4" and "AVI"). So far, I have only Standard Definition movies on my HDD, but I plan to copy my Blu-ray discs in the future.

I use a PC with a Core i7-950 CPU, 6GB of RAM memory, a 128GB SSD for my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS and programs, and 2TB HDDs for data and backups. My video card is only a ASUS GeForce ENGTS450.

I have finally solved my problem #1; i.e. how to synchronize audio and video for movies played on my TV from my computer HDD. I upgraded from my old "WD TV Live Media Player (Generation 1)" to the new "WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (Generation 3)". This new equipment includes a menu adjustment to synchronize audio and video, and it works to fix my movies which are unsynchronized!

I never could find a software program to fix this in my video files, but the new hardware is perfect for my setup. I do not have an A/V Receiver (or surround sound speaker system), but the "WD TV Live Streaming Media Player (Generation 3)" can be used between a computer and the Receiver (of course, this would not be needed if the audio/video sync adjustment is included with your A/V Receiver).

I am considering the same upgrade. I want to reduce the time between clips. If you put a collection of clips in a folder, select the folder and press play, what is the lag time between clips. My gen 1 players takes a few seconds.

I sent the same question to Western Digital and the odd answer was that I couldn't upgrade the firmware on the old one with the firmware of the new one.

Any NLE that has individual audio tracks and allows having multiple tracks can do what you want.

If A/V is sync'd when playing on a computer and is not sync'd when playing on a TV, then there is a problem with your setup. This is especially noticeable when audio and video take different paths, say you use a receiver or outboard scaler. My new BD player has a setting to set audio delay from 0 to 90 ms I believe.
