(setq tex-dvi-view-command "xdvi")
(setq tex-dvi-print-command "dvips")
you will get the same functionality of the TeXnic center.
Inverse search doesn't work too well if you have complex files (many inputs) so I would not advise to use it. If you want I could teach you how.
Best advice is always to stick with one editor (I use Emacs since 1988) and learn it well.
All classical Unix editors like vi or vim are extremely powerfully when you learn them well.
I would steer a way from any integrated environment like TeXnic center as they are going to dumb you down very quickly to the point that you will not know how to use computer.
That is one of the worst legacies of Windows OS. (MS-DOS was not like that)
