I actually only used Apache. There's Zend Server. http://www.zend.com/products/server/ It has a community edition.
You'll probably be good with Apache. It's the most used web server.

I'd stick with Apache as well. WAMPServer would be a quick way to setup a dev enviroment.

It depends on your requirements.
Apache is widely popular Server Software.
But several popular websites (like Youtube and Wikipedia) use lighttpd. Lighttpd doesn't have all features which Apache has, but it's known to be fast.

I use XAMP, Pretty fast and simple to use. BTW i am not a professional PHP Developer and feel XAMP comfortable for developing some basic DB Driven Sites.
