you you want a PHP IDE? or just a texteditor that highlights php code?
for the later, i think gedit might, or i recommend VIm and turn syntax highlighting on

Custom IDE;

I think you can run php scripts from a terminal, so open one up and move to your project directory.

grab a copy of nedit, it'll do php highlighting I think.
give one half of the screen to the terminal, and the other half to nedit, if you have more files to edit,
open up more copies of nedit.

I write a lot of webpages and other scripts in php using quanta it definitely shows php and also has very good syntax highlighting for php.

But can I run/preview php scripts with quanta? And if I can then how?

You don't necessarily run the php script in quanta, if it's a webpage, you run it from your web browser. You will need apache installed with php support. I configure apache to enable users to have a sub directory in their home directory where web pages are served from, so that when I am developing php enabled sites, I can save the files in my home directory and run them from there using a web browser.
