Follow the directions on this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP  I recommend you use the builtin commands to do this because you will get a version configured for Ubuntu.  Something like : sudo apt-get install apache2

And here's a page on Tomcat: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-tomcat-6-on-ubuntu-9-04-jaunty.html

Yes, you can access Microsoft SQL Server 2005 thru PHP and probably other languages but it must be running on a different machine because it requires Windows to run.  I don't know about accessing it thru JSP on Linux.  The SQL Server must be set up with a user that is allowed to remotely access it and the database you want to use.

I don't really know.  You'll have to ask someone else about that.

The website for Apache defaults to /var/www/

Just create a folder within that directory and then add that name to the end of your URL

example:
mkdir /var/www/aspdev

URL: http://webserver/aspdev/

There is a more complicated way to create the source code anywhere and have Apache link to it buts that's pretty advanced stuff. I have not dealt with Tomcat.

As to where you stick your html / deploy your Webapps, the directories are specified by two environment variable:

DocumentRoot     =  Apache HTTPD base directory, probably /var/www/htdocs, you'll probably find the variable in a /etc/apache*/*.conf file

CATALINA_HOME  =  Apache Tomcat base directory, applications are deployed into the "webapps" directory off this directory, may be set to "/usr/share/tomcat", you'll probably find the variable set in /etc/tomcat*/tomcat*.conf

The location of the configuration files / CATALINA_HOM can be verified through the following commands:

ps -ef | egrep "httpd|java"
grep DocumentRoot    /etc/apache2/*
grep CATALINA_HOME /etc/tomcat*/*

As to "refrence a microsoft server 2005" I'm guessing you are asking how you connect a Tomcat Web application to a MS SQL Server database. For a start you'll need to download the appropriate JDBC driver (.jar) and drop it into you application lib directory, tweak the applications context and bounce (stop/start) the Tomcat, see: http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/UsingDataSources
