    You can get started here. There are links there that will take you to system requirements as well as everything you need to download to start coding.

    And yes you need Windows 8 to develop for Windows Phone 8.

    Assuming that you might also be talking about Windows Store application development, you cannot work on those outside a Windows 8 OS. Details here.

    just one thing:   by "Windows 8 mobile app" to you mean a "mobile app" on windows 8 or a windows 8 phone app ??

    given that in the past MS used the word "mobile" for the phones and also used to refer to CE but now we have windows 8 the phone and windows 8 the desktop and windows 8 the tablet ....

    much possible confusion here ...
