Wordpress is an open source framework for buidling and maintaining a website. It is proably the most widely used framework and provides a very friendly interface for you to maintain the content of the website

The tools used refers to the technologies used to build the site - Wordpress is developed in PHP against a MySQL database.

CSS / HTML and JQuery are the technologies used on the frontend (the web page) to create the look and feel and content of the page.

The above are all open source technologies and represent the most widely used technologies for building and maintaining websites.

Whether WordPress is the best option would depend on your specific circumstances - if you trust your design company then you should listen to their recommendation

No points for this answer, please.

You should be asking the company that provided the proposal these questions.  If they can't or won't provide answers to your satisfaction then that's a huge sign you should find a different company to do business with.  Never accept a proposal that hasn't been thoroughly explained...
Ask them a demo so you can see if this will meet your needs.

Using Joomla you can create a classifieds portal more easily I think, there are plenty of extension for that
