There are many ways to make a table file. One of the ways is to use what is called a relative search for common words that appear in the game's main text. The search will find any possibilities based on the byte values in your rom. If you're lucky, you will find several instances of this word, and by scrolling through them, you will find large portions of text in the right section of your hex editor. You will be prompted to make a table file based on these results, and then the editor will display the text for you. This will also help you with question two.

As for the hex editor, I have never tried hex workshop, but I know that it is a popular one. Try them both out and stick with whichever you feel more comfortable.
