Specifically I am downloading cracked software for the sole purpose of being able to identify whether or not deploying said software would impose a security risk if I were to, for example, use it on my main system for free.

The furthest I was able to get was identifying the address that verifies if an application is licensed but I don't know how to change that. Nor is it present in the cracked software (100% sure it's just a virus).

tl;dr pls point me to where i should be doing my dd

If it's a one time run (collecting all stored passwords and send them online, not really
but if it comes with a long term malware the kernel and physical memoryscan can be used to access processes that have hidden themselves
then from there you can scan for memory that apps usually shouldn't have, like a list of the keys in the order you pressed them
You can also use the patchscanner to see if it has placed any hooks in system modules
