You can use Eclipse. I'm using both eclipse and netbeans, but I've started with netbeans because it's better for beginners.
I'm not sure what to recommend because I don't know if you are familiar with Java (j2me is just version of java).

here's few links:

I strongly recommend to avoid roseindia website as it is "bag of chaos" full of stolen code (none of it is associated with book from which it was taken or website) and it is not organized at all.

I have to agree with Aleksandar that Beginning J2ME: From Novice to Professional is good start (he just linked wrong section of the book and didn't provide full name) you will fin there lot of materials, however if you looking for some up-to-date stuff you should pick Kicking Butt with MIDP and MSA: Creating Great Mobile Applications.

To start working on it you need to download either Java ME SDK 3.0 or Sun Java Wireless Toolkit 2.5.2 for CLDC[/code] or visit any mobile manufacturers developer section of site to get custom WTKs ([url=http://developer.sonyericsson.com/site/global/docstools/java/p_java.jsp]Sony Ericsson, Nokia)
