Default How to properly record electric drums

I have both a Tama Imperialstar which I've had for a few years now, and I've had an electric drumset for about 6 years now which is a DD502 Mk. 1. I use the electric kit for silent practice and for recording drums to song demo's that I record. Here's a song I did a while back to show how they sound recorded:

They work decently for the job, but the problem is that I record them out through the mono-out, and there is no way to edit the kit after the track has been recorded because the whole thing is put into one drum track.

What I'd like to do is have it so each piece is recorded onto a separate track (bass has its own track, snare has its own track, hi hats, etc) in my software program that I use which is Audacity. The module has MIDI in and MIDI out, so if I bought a MIDI to USB cable, would this do the trick? Do I need additional hardware/software? I have no clue about any of this so any help would be appreciated.
