I would agree with Don...Box2D is worth looking at, since it is built for 2D and is extremely nice. But, to answer your other question, yes, PhysX can be used for 2D physics. It is non-optimal, since as far as I know you'd have to add joint constraints to all your bodies to keep them aligned/oriented with the 2D plane. That would make it more expensive to run. Box2D would work out better, if all you are doing is rigid body dynamics.
