I downloaded and imported into a new project a Youtube video. When I "played" it, there was no sound. I also don't see any means to edit the video, which has no pictures but which I want to use as audio file for a FB post.
Does the free version not allow editing or playback?

Welcome to the forum.

The free version allows you to do nearly everything, the main restriction is the export format.

Please watch the quick start video to get you started:

Some downloading software re-encodes when downloading. That works fine with some software, with others it doesn't. The resulting format might be not compatible with Lightworks. If the video shows as expected in a normal media player, i.e. if it is not damaged, this should be fixable.

Could you post a Mediainfo report of the footage (the downloaded video), please? Here you'll find details:
