With much help from Kent Johnson, I have the following line set up in a 
custom Tool Configuration:
C:\Python24\pythonw C:\Python24\Lib\idlelib\idle.pyw -r "%f"

So I just press F5 and the script gets run in IDLE. I get the nice error 
messages, or hopefully it just works! :)

Not sure about the debugger. Do you mean using the pdb module?

I don't think you can normally, but maybe you can write a macro to do 
this. Not sure how though.
