    Hello, and welcome to SitePoint!

    I'm afraid that what you're looking to do simply is not possible. You will have to learn how to write an RSS feed. Fortunately it's not that hard, and the best source for learning how to do so is actually free.
    http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/deveo...ter/index.html

    Click on the link in "Chapter 4: RSS 2.0 (PDF Format)" and you'll be good to go (as for writing them manually).

    If you want to generate an RSS feed automatically, you're going to have to use a database and a server-side programming language. I'm not exactly familiar with HOW to do this, but I do know it will involve storing your contents in a database, then using the programming language you're using to grab the content from the database, parse it as an RSS file, then save it as a dynamic file that will be updated automatically. If you'd like to learn how, I suggest you ask on the PHP board here at SitePoint (if your hosting provider supports PHP - which it should). Kailash Badu or one of the other PHP gurus will be able to help you with that.

    If you're using ASP.NET then wwb_99 or another .NET guru will be able to help out.

    For 1, try Firefox RSS editor
    I don't know of anything easier for 2 than a database driven feed as suggested by Dan.
