Have you looked into the Bunkhouse? I enjoyed Ruby On Rails Tutorial, but there are other suggestions there as well.

For IDEs, Eclipse with a plugin is free. There's also RubyMine, which is based on IntelliJ. It's free to try out, but after a month you'll have to pay a license fee to keep using it.

Michael Hartl wrote a book on Ruby on Rails which you can read online for free. It's pretty good. Google it. There are also free sandboxed Ruby interpreters online which are also pretty good. Tryruby and railsforzombies are examples.
If you are running OS X then you will probably want to run Textmate now that it is free. If you're on Windows then it's probably Sublime Text, they also do a free version but it has ads reminding you to pay for it. I found Ruby development environment to be pretty slow on Windows and preferred dual-booting with a Linux environment, in which case, you can use Gedit. Or, you can use Vim on any of the OS's. Or Eclipse.
