You can fins XT manuals here http://line6.com/support/manuals/
As for recording software, you might want to take a look a Reaper. It is VERY economical, as well as powerful, and relatively easy to use. http://www.reaper.fm
Lastly, make sure that you download and install Line 6 Monkey, so that you get all of your software and drivers up-to-date. http://line6.com/software

Welcome to the crazy world of digital guitar modelling!
You will have a ton of questions - don't hesitate to come here to ask, and it will certainly help to read the manuals as BigChas52 has pointed you to.
You're right - the Riffworks Line 6 Edition is no longer in production. That's because the commercial Riffworks products are now fully line 6 compatible. There's a free version (T4) as well as the Standard version. I suggest you start with the free version to get your feet wet.
To get the Riffworks products:
Riffworks is more guitar oriented, while Reaper is a much more fully featured (and hence a little more complex) audio/midi recording program. (If you're not familiar with midi, don't even think about it just yet!). No harm in comparing both Riffworks and Reaper to see which suits you better.
