There are lots of different programming languages that you can use in Linux. C and C++ are among the most widely used and supported; you could also check out Python, Perl, Java, Ruby, Tcl/Tk, or any number of others. It all sort of depends on what you want to do with programming.
you can check here for winmodem support. http://www.linmodems.org/
as far as modems go, i don't use dial up so i don't know. i heard though if you get an external hardware modem, you should have no problem getting it to work in linux.
