Well it looks like you want to make games for mobile phones, right?

 

Obviously, you need a device to test your apps on. Since you have a windows phone, it would be cheaper to pick up a copy of windows 8 for pc than to buy an android device to test apps on...but the choice is up to you since android tablets are beginning to dip below 200 USD. 

 

BUT...if you are looking to develop apps professionally then learning android would be the smart choice because android is currently more popular than windows phone.

Java and C# are very similar. You shouldn't have to much trouble switching between them.

For greatest reach, Adobe AIR / Flash are your best bets. You'll find it very easy to pick up ActionScript (especially after working with JS), and you don't have to worry about portability or compatibility. Of course, performance will always be just a smidge below native code, but then again so will Java and JavaScript (AIR / Flash use many optimization techniques like JIT compilation these days so they're on par in terms of speed).
