A simple text editor will suffice but it's a lot better to use a specialist code editor.
Have a look at http://www.php-editors.com

database option: it depends on what your hosting package is. do you buy hosting from someone, or do you have your own computer setup as a server? hosting packages usually always include the ability to setup at least one database. the software is already on their server. Go to cpanel or contact your hosting provider for help.
flatfile option: you would basically have a seperate file in your directory. you would then use php to open the file and get the contents and display it. if someone posts a new message, it would open the same file and add the new message into the file.
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community
