I'd recommend starting with the basics of networking and try to get a working chat room program that you set up and connect to on your local network. Once you understand the basics of networking, you can begin to see how the networking side of your game will have to work. As for the game itself, if you're planning on doing a 2d RPG like you mentioned, then you'll want to learn to work with sprite sheets for animation. You'll also most likely need a tile engine that you can build yourself so that adding levels is considerably easier than just putting all the data for every level directly in your code. That should keep you busy for quite a while.

Check out the Java Game Programming Thread, as well as WolfCoder's client-server tutorial.

There are a bunch of Java IDEs you can use. Most any of them will work, since an IDE doesn't affect the code.

I linked to a bunch of those tutorials in my last thread. You can also check out the Java and Game Programming tutorials sections on DIC.

What do you mean programs? Do you want software that will create games for you?

Specificity goes a long way around here :) We are programmers after all.

You need to learn what an Integrated Development Environment is, and then learn Java before you can even think of starting to develop a game... of any kind.
