Default Where to start with sound design?

Hello, I'm Rob, this is my first post here and I'm a total newb.

I've just become the proud owner of a DSLR, and I made a film using only a green screen. I've become very familiar with After Effects over the past few weeks and I've completed all the visual effects, however, I've absolutely no idea where to start when it comes to sound design.

The scenes take place in many different locations and I need to know how to manipulate the audio recordings of the actors and sound effects to sell the illusion they're in all these different locations. (e.g. In a church hall, in a tiny cupboard, over the telephone etc etc).

I have audacity, but can't for the life of me find a guide or tutorial that gives such specific advice.

I have a mac and would be able to afford, within reason, a program that does what I need it to do, if anyone has any idea on what I need, that would be very helpful indeed!

Or if audacity is a satisfactory program for the job, do such guides exist?

If you can help on this issue, I'd be very appreciative.

Thanks in advance!

I use Pristine Sounds for audio restoration and editing. It has some presets for various environments, as well as the ability to customize. I don't know if there is a mac version, though.
