will i be able to record me and my brother playing say four tracks simultaneously and then be able to hear all of it through playback from the mixer? be able to overdub etc?
Yes - you will be able to do that.
By having more channels returning to the mixer, you could have each track coming back to a dedicated channel on the board, instead of the whole thing mixed together in the computer and playing back over the 2 return channels. It's just extra routing options. I like being able to grab a fader, and drop out the drum track, etc. But it won't matter for the kind of thing you're trying to do.
I didn't mean to frighten you!
