I'm about to start out - quite excited :).
I expect to be using a Nikon D750 for video and Zoom H4n Pro for sound.

Does Corel Videostudio X9 have all the tools I will need?

I looked at the manual and didn't see reference to being able to record digital video and audio separately and then sync them.

Thanks for your advice and comments.

Yes you can do this with NLE Video Editing Program and the fix is easy. You have seen how they shoot TV shows and Films, they use a Clapper Board. They stand in front of the Camera and within a few feet of the Microphone and slam a hinged slat down on board edge, which makes a spike in the Audio Signal, that can be seen on the Timeline of the NLE as a Line in the Audio. Now you do not need a Clapboard, you can simply Clap. while standing in front your Camera and with Zoom recorder close enough to hear the clap. Experiment on where the Zoom has to be to get a good spike. Once you have that and have you Video & Audio files on the computer, simply put both files on the Timeline and line up the clap with the Audio spike and your rolling.
