I was trying to do a real world flight from KSFO to LFPG, and basically it gives me this route that doesn't look real or even possible with any aircraft, and basically takes me up the west coast, then across the pacific, then, across the atlantic. How do I get it not to do this? Or am I misunderstanding something?

I've got the 9.0 version of the Areosoft download.
FSX Acceleration as well.

You have not misunderstood but ... You did not read the manual.
Chapter 16, and NATracks PACOTS, page 100
All you need to cross the Atlantic you'll find in this chapter.

Manok101 - here is how you get real world routes:
Under "FORGOT the FLIGHT NUMBER?" type in ICAO of both departure and arrival airports (this site only does US departures, there may be another for Europe). Using the route you want, KSFO to LFPG:
Flight Finder Results » San Francisco Intl (KSFO) - Charles de Gaulle/Roissy (LFPG)
Ident Aircraft Status Departed ► Arrival Connection Operator AFR85 B772 Scheduled (in 6 hours 25 minutes) Sun 06:35PM SFO ► CDG 02:00PM Mon
Air France
Clicking on any of the results, you get the next page.

Now copy the route into FSC but delete lat/long coordinates but follow the method Volker mentioned. Now you have a real world route.
