The page for WML http://www.wirelessdevnet.com/channels/wap/training/wml.html

Regarding servers, Apache would be fine. You need PHP as well:
have a look to http://www.developer.com/lang/php/article.php/10941_1449061_2

The setup described here for Apache sounds more complete: http://www.devshed.com/c/a/WML/Introduction-to-WAP-using-WML-ASP-and-PHP/1/

1) Any web server will do ie IIS, Apache etc
2) Depends on which one you chose, but you are setting it up as though its a normal web server
3) WML is the mark up used for wireless devices is similar in many respects to HTML.
4) People such as Motorola produce wap phone emulators which you can use to test against.
