It is basically where you do your work;

Regardless, I'd look into getting the Microsoft visual studio express which can be found on microsofts website.

It is a very easy to use IDE and has lots of support.

IDE just makes the whole compiling process easier. It doesn't actually compile for you, but it makes it one click away at all times, so you don't have to have 8 windows open for notepad, a compiler running, and a command line for running your applications, just the IDE. IDE's mostly provide you with a nicer text-editor (at least for coding), a bunch of options (so that you don't have to mess around with makefiles, which can be overwhelming to beginners), more debugging options (so that you don't have to use yet another program to debug), and a one-button compile.

You will get more responses by asking here than by requesting to IM. IM is actually a pretty bad method for talking about code, mostly just because they don't have much ability to display code easily. However, if you really want that route, you can check out the #gamedev channel for IRC. Lots of people on there. The details are somewhere on this website...
