Yes, but to be more specific (if you want to prepare for debugging)...

gcc -Wall -ggdb sourcefile.c -o outputfile

will specify the name of the output file.

There are many text editors. If you're comfortable with cli apps, there's emacs, vi or vim, nano and a few others. If you prefer something more graphical there's gvim, emacs, leafpad, gedit, kedit and many others.

Although it's encouraged to use a text editor and gcc or g++, there are IDE's available such as Anjunta and Eclipse (with the C/C++ plugin).

In Ubuntu, if you go through the menu, you can navigate to "text editor" (gedit) and then use gnome-terminal to compile. What I would suggest though is using either emacs or vim to edit, then you have a more direct access to the compilers.
