I wish I could be more helpful, but I think with the ps2dev forums, you'll find everything you need. As far as IDEs go, it doesn't matter at all, as long as you're comfortable with it. Some people use Eclipse, some use Programmer's Notepad, etc. Depends on your environment. I'm under windows/cygwin, I use a basic editor with syntax highlighting, and I keep a few shells open, one for compiling, two for debugging with PSPLink (it's invaluable).
Aside from the psp sdk, I doubt you'll need anything more than that with respect to emulator development. GDB is available for better debugging, but I haven't had need of it. When your program crashes or throws an exception under PSPlink, it's fairly easy to investigate with the register dump it provides (when you compile with debugging symbols on, you can get the line and function the offending crash happens at). It's a little more hands-on than say, a Visual Studio setup, but it works.
