Yes, I remember the QBasic editor too.  Personally,
I found it horribly annoying, but (shrug) to each his own.
I don't know of any such for PHP, but you could probably
manage with a 'folding' text editor.

Note that in PHP (like Pascal) it is possible to define
functions-inside-functions; I haven't seen code that
actually uses this, but it's something to keep in mind.

yes, it's called a 'function'.

As above, don't know any offhand; but it should
be easy enough to write code to return you a
list of functions.
