Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I added a track with tags and description but its very hard to follow the track and get an overview due to its thin represantion line. How do i change it to something bold and colored and how do i present it together with its distance?

The openstreetmap.org website is not really designed for sharing GPS tracks. You can upload GPX traces, but that is primarily to assist with mapping.

If you want to share GPS tracks there are other websites that can do this, some of which can show OSM based maps in the background. Some of these websites are listed in this article on the wiki: Track drawing websites

Most of these clearly show the track, with a thick line, as well as showing track statistics like the distance, time and elevation.
