A "script file" is not special. It's essentially just a text file.

So any text editor could be used to create it. As long as it can save files as plain text.

Alternatively, if you'd like to separate the creation of the file from editing it, you could use touch /path/to/your/new/file to create it, and then use a text editor to edit its contents.

PS: If you haven't already, I would recommend you get some experience with basic Linux command line usage first. Forget about ROS for a second, learn a bit about the command line, then start doing the tutorials.

It will save you time searching and asking questions here on ROS Answers (and then waiting for someone to answer them) and will let you focus on more interesting things.
