    Had two questions regarding the Orange Micro Terror

    1) Can it be used in conjunction with a USB interface like an AudioBox?

    and

    2) If so, would I need to use an attenuator with it?

    Not unless you hook it up to a DI box that can handle speaker level signals.

    So in that case the chain would be Guitar>pedal>amp> speaker out in back of the amp> DI box> USB interface?

    If this is right, could you recommend a DI box that can handle a speaker level signal?

    ^That Behringer will do the trick. BSS AR133 can also handle speaker level signals. I'm sure there's plenty of others that do too.

    So run the guitar into the Micro Terror, run the speaker out into the Behringer DI box, run the XLR out of the back of the DI and into the front of the AudioBox? Will this work without frying anything?

    Yeah, the Micro has a solid state power amp so doesn't need a load connected (though thinking about it I wonder if the DI would need a load on the link/thru output? in which case a dummy load would work fine)
    You'll need to use at least the 20dB pad on the DI to bring the level down for the preamp.
