Hi !
You can get the source code here http://sourceforge.net/projects/tuxguitar/files/TuxGuitar/TuxGuitar-1.2/tuxguitar-src-1.2.tar.gz/download

For cvs, google is your friend :p but look this first : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concurrent_Versions_System

Anything that will open text files will work.

Based on the source code, Eclipse is probably the best IDE to use. A lot of the code is auto-generated by Eclipse or some plugins for it. I've not used it so I don't know what to suggest, but if I were you I'd start with "Eclipse IDE for Java Developers".
