1) Need a programming language to code - this can be anything...like Java or C++?
This is the same as question one. If it's browser based then your programming language will actually be a scripting language and of course you need a database too, MySQL is the industry standard.2) Need a server-side scripting languages - will PHP and MySQL be good here?
It's nearly impossible to find a free host that supports PHP and MySQL. You would in fact be better off running your own server, developing on that, then you upload to a high speed pay-server for final releases. This is what most web developers do. You don't want to have to FTP a file every time you make a change to do the same thing as compiling in C++. You just save it and refresh the page in your browser. You can do this when you're running your own Apache server. If it's just a text based game though your connection at home should be more than you need and you won't have to pay for any hosting.3) Need a hosting server - i have found a free such hosting services like http://www.janhost.com/
Server side scripts output the markup. Yeah you have to do designing too.4) Browser interface - Html,css..etc..
