For Example :
I deploy my solution to ports 80, 81.

I want them to change based on a file value, like resources or smth.....

Hi!

You can create a resource file e.g. MyResources.resx and put it in inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\[portnumber]\App_GlobalResources. Then you can read values in page markup like following:
<SharePoint:EncodedLiteral ID="EncodedLiteral1" runat="server" text="<%$Resources:MyResources, MyString_Value%>" EncodeMethod='HtmlEncode'/>

It's just like for other asp.net applications: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms227427.aspx

Sure, I'll try to help you. What do you mean by "read resource"? Read from code? Or paste resource string in page markup of something else?
Storing is very simple just create resource file in Visual Studio (resx file) and copy to App_GlobalResources folder.
