A finder search reveals that the only copies of those files are html and in the manual.
What does this mean? That my Audacity isn't registered?

A Finder search may not look in your Library folder.

In the Finder, click on the Go menu and choose "Go to Folder". In the dialog, type: ~/Library/Application Support/audacity. Note the "~" character at the beginning. This should reveal the audacity folder, and in that the pluginregistry.cfg and pluginsettings.cfg files. Also in that folder is the "Plug-ins" folder, which is where you should put the "Noisegate.ny" file.

I was working with 2.1. and it didn't work (the directions you supplied); so I moved that app and opened the new 2.2.0 and tried again. The effects and analysis (wave stats) now show up in the appropriate menus, but they're greyed out and can't be applied.....NO WAIT A MINUTE--I'd not loaded a file and selected anything. AND when I did that, they turned black and WORKED. BRAVO!!!
Thank you SO MUCH. I'm back at it now with the latest version of Audacity! With about 6 hours of recording to do, and 12 hours of proofing and adjusting on the new book!
