I've moved this to the programming section :)

 

Notepad++ is a decent editor. However, you may also want to look into using Visual Studio Code. I switched from NotePad++ to VS Code a few months ago and I personally like it a lot more.

 

In regards to lua, are you looking to learn lua to develop addons/scripts for Garry's Mod?

For glua (GMod lua to my understanding), I'd suggest starting here. If you want to get familiar with lua itself, I found this nice set of tutorials as well.

 

In the first link, the "Developer Reference" section will be very useful for once you understand the lua syntax.

 

With that said, I hope the game mode turns out well. If this is your first time messing with lua, I'd suggest starting off small such as making basic addons and scripts since making a game mode is a bigger task and may be overwhelming for beginners.

 

I haven't messed with lua as much throughout the last few years. Therefore, other more experienced developers may have more pointers, etc. There used to be a lot of tutorials on FacePunch's forum. However, that was taken down some time ago without any official archives unfortunately.

 

I hope the above helps :)

I would also recommend using Sublime Text Editor, and you should watch youtubers like Codeblue, and Dan FMN.
