Recoil on my Dart 2? can i adjust it?

i bunnyhopped off a rock today got about 3 feet off air, and usually when i get air i like to tweak my bike to the right a little bit. Anyways, i landed it perfectly, then my front end bounced a little bit and i went straight into a tree. Lucky i got a foot unclipped and was able to stop my momentum before my body hit the tree, my bike still hit it hard.

soo...

1. Is there any way to adjust recoil on my fork? it is a rockshox dart 2. (stock on the cinder cone)
2. After the crash i noticed a clicking sound coming from the frame. like a stress fracture beginning to form in a weld.

I was wondering... on cheap forks like those, can you pump extra air into the positive side of the fork to make it a little more stiff? or take air out to make it a little more squishy?

it has a Preload adjustment and a lock out on it, so it isnt too terrible.

the bike is a month old. it creeks when i pedal down with my left foot, kind of like it is twisting under pressure type sound.

if my frame breaks, i wonder if i can trade it up for a kona coiler if i pass some more money over to em. FS is nice.
