Correct me if I am wrong, but at a quick glance, it would seem that Nero
Wave Editor will recompress the file. The big thing with direct cut, is
that it is totally lossless - of course, that means no clean-up features!
For clean up, you will go a long way to find anything the excel Sonic
Foundry's Noise Reduction plugin ...but it is NOT free!

v4.5), you will need to purchase a serial number to unlock everything.
SF has(/had) no lossless mp3 edit feature.
