I used to use the 3b1 quite heavily in the early '90s, and
I'm pretty sure I remember running a build of rogue on
it, though I usually ran without the windowing system to
get a full 80 columns.

As Dave mentiones, yes there are many other editors for
it. The unixpc.taronga.com site that was mentioned earlier
is Peter da Silva's redepolyment of the site that I used
to maintain at Rhodes College in the '90s. There's a lot
of stuff there.

I even got carried away and created my own custom font
for the machine.

As for a C compiler, there are a couple of gcc ports and there's
the one that comes with the dev tools.
