i suggest you go out and buy yourself a php tutorial book. php in easy steps is a pretty good book that teaches the basics of php. it's really cheap and easy to understand.

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 :)

well you aren't really gonna find a wysiwyg php editor like dreamweaver or frontpage does html. there are plenty of premade scripts out there for all kinds of stuff so you can get around learning the finer points of php but you are still going to have to take the time to learn the basics so that you can integrate it into your site.

You can download and install PHP and Apache on your computer to test your scripts and you can use a text editor or something like PHP Developer 2005 or 2006 to develop the code. But yes, you'll need a host that has PHP on it to run PHP scripts.
