which IDE has mature support Sun JSF, Apache MyFaces JSF ? for Eclipse, which plugin will be better ? Most important, which IDE has drag-and-drop (WYSIWYG) function ? Any editor has WYSIWYG function for MyFaces ?
MyEclipse has full support for JSF. It has dragndrop-like thingy for building JSF templates. And you could call WYSIWYG its visual editor.
Just create a new Web Project and through the context menu add JSF support, all the minimal needed stuff will be added and visual workspace JSF features will become active.
Wanna install linux on a vacuum cleaner. Could anyone tell me which distro sucks better?

JSF itself is designed as a JavaBean architecture, so properly-developed JSF tagsets are supposed to be able out of the box to be designed with DDD* interfaces. That includes MyFaces.
Actual decent DDD is harder to come by. Reportedly, NetBeans has a good one. I used Oracle's JDeveloper a couple of years back, but theirs was comparable to the old "web page designer" in Mozilla, which wasn't very sophisticated. I hear IBM's RAD supports DDD as well, but it does it by making the design dependent on IBM-proprietary runtime modules. Since I do open-source, I can't generally take advantage of that.
