I would like to be able to open a php file and edit it from a browser window. We need to easily add website to this file.

We will have a hidden, password protected area that we will use to edit this file.

Is there an easy way to do this? If so how?

Thank you.

You could use the PHP file manipulation. i.e. create your own version of a string builder to create the files for you.

This could be more hassle than it's worth. I would suggest an IDE with robust error-checking and all the rest of it and then FTP, but having tested it on a test server first, however I do see the attraction. If you have a team working on the site, you can use check-in and check-out.
