Of course, it depends on which GUI text editor you want to run.  gedit
is a good choice.

Just run:

su
gedit

I'm almost certain it's installed by default.  But if not, run:

su
yum -y install gedit

That's fine.  There's almost never a need to use one.

No.  gedit, gvim, and emacs (though this can be run in a command-line
terminal as well) are all GUI editors (and there are many other GUI
editors to choose from).
