Yes you can use Dreamweaver to edit your php files. But you wont be able to preview any changes to your php files in Design View. As Dreamweaver doesnt know what PHP is.

So if you want to see what your changes to your php files have made you'll want to install a package called XAMPP or WAMP. YOu can then run your php files on your computer with out having to upload a single file to your host to see the changes.
