You always can edit the code in Eclipse or NetBeans or another IDE but
according the instructions on wiki.gimp.org
I would recommend you using Linux to hack gimp. It just not practical to do
all of this building
process again and again. You can for example edit the code on windows and
debug it on
Linux. When you done, compile it for Windows. By the way, both Eclipse and
working fine on Linux.
For the other questions about customizing gimp,all of these things are pure
mostly C. Gimp's code it mostly very readable (for an 20 years old project, at
you should be able to understand it after some time.
Have a nice day,
