You are not going to be able to record vocals over a track you made in reason 3 because Reason Essentials can only open files created with Essentials - to open your old Reason 3 files, you need to upgrade to Reason 6.5.
that said, if your reason 3 is a paid/legit license, register it...with your balance+essentials and the R3 license, you are entitled to free upgrade to R6.5.
To record through balance (i.e. vocals) you need to plug the mic into balance, then select the appropriate input on balance.
in reason - edit >> preferences | audio ; select balance as the interface
create an audio track, and it should be ready to go.
