You can do it with a text editor if you know what you're doing. The real question is: what are you trying to do? For example, I can print to a ps file from OpenOffice, or I can create a document with TeX, output it to dvi and then run it through dvips. If you want to create eps graphics, you'll need something like Sodipodi.
To edit a P.S. file you should become a Postscript programmer guru first. P.S. files are ascii files, so, you can use any editor like vi. From other applications like Netscape, koffice, openoffice you can create P.S. files. So, if you want to edit a P.S. file just edit the "source" file. Some P.S. related commands are gs, a2ps, psnup, ps2pdf, etc.
