Situation: I am editing a file that I recorded in stereo, to get the inputs from 2 mics. I split the stereo to mono and now I can only hear sounds made into my mic on the left side of my earphones. Not only that, there is a little latency on the monitor as well, almost like an echo. I can hear music from other apps completely fine on my headphones. I’m set on Mono Recording, and when I record to a mono track the playback is centered.

That’s very strange… Normally, the little pan-sliders to the left of the waveform get centered and then everything comes-out of both speakers. And then with the default settings it should export as true-mono file (and only one waveform should show-up if you re-open it).
to get the inputs from 2 mics…
…Mic is plugged into Input 1
Not only that, there is a little latency on the monitor as well,
There’s always some latency through the computer. But your interface has zero-latency direct-hardware monitoring so you can monitor yourself without going through the computer.
I’m not sure if this relates to your issue but there are mono/stereo settings in Windows and that can sometimes cause problems if it doesn’t match your Audacity settings.
