Is it possible to connect my Boss multiple effects ME-25 to my BR-800 recorder. If so how, and can it then be linked to an amp (again how)
Yes you can connect your ME-25 to the BR-800, there is no risk to damage any. it is simple, you may use both outputs of the pedal and send them via two normal 1/4 plug guitar cables to two of the channels of the DR (i.e. ch 1 & 2) to avoid an initial saturation of the recording preamp, set the input sens pot at minimum and the sliders very close to minimum as you try playing and looking the levels on the display and adjunting them to the optimum.
To connect the DR to an amp you should use the pair of RCA jacks named LINE OUT (R & L) depending of the amp you have there might be the need for a conversion cable or plug adapters. The out put of the DR is stereo, and if you want to use a guitar amp, commonly mono, you should mix both channels to send them to one input, this can be done by putting two 10 kohms resistors in series with each channel output and joining the other end to the input.
Good luck and best wishes

Auto punch -does this allow the recording to begin
Yep, that's what its supposed to do. You set the start (and stop) points and it punches from play to record so you can pick up just before where you goofed up. I'd suggest you put the punch-in point at a natural transition to what you're recording - like a pause in guitar part of between verse/chorus of vocals. If you try to punch into the middle of a guitar run (for example) the results may be less that satisfactory. Make sure you sing/play along with the playback so the transition sounds natural - don't try to just pick up after the punch.
