Auditing policies are in place except for the Audit process tracing.  Is it still possible to see when a certain file was opened and by who and when?

You may have to use/locate vbscripts/wmi scripts that will let you search through the event log entries to locate the information.
In a domain, the audit events will be in the security event log on the DC.
