Cold Fusion Vs. Dreamweaver - How Much Of A Difference

Also Cold Fusion code (IMO) is simpler to understand than either PHP or ASP.

That is of course if you are happy letting it write whatever code somebody else decided was best to do what you want

Dreamweaver is basically an HTML editor. A good one, but just an editor at the end of the day.
Cold Fusion on the other hand is a server side scripting language, in the vein of PHP, ASP and the like.
I don't see how they're in any way similar.

christchurch is partly right, in respect to it's limitations but if you use it to create the basic building blocks, manual tweaking and customisation is relatively simple and allows a lot of creativity.
Like any WYSIWYG tool, you shouldn't just let it have it's head. You need to follow the code that it creates customising and tweaking it into the sensible zone.

Do I need to purchase a ColdFusion program or can I simply use Dreamweaver to develop the code?

C-panel hosting is very cheap these days and usually comes with PHP and MYSQL.

Hosting for ColdFusion can be had very inexpensively. You can get a ColdFusion 8 plan with a database for under $30 a month from Hostmysite.com and with all the built in features that CF has (image manipulation, ease of coding, verity search, pdf generation, etc) you can easily make up the $20 a month you might save by going with a php host.
Before Macromedia bought ColdFusion it was owned by Allaire.
You can also download the developer edition of ColdFusion for free from Adobe and get SQLServer Express or MySQL for free so development costs are basically zero. Eclipse also can integrate version control software like subversion or subclipse which will help you keep track of code changes, again, for free.
