You can use the build in chat to chat with other players in game, including ATC. Sometimes the ATC is available in a mumble server you can use additionally.

Yes, the built in chat is the built in chat. Some people use Discord or IRC for chatting outside of flying. And some people use Discord, Mumble or FGCom for voice chatting while flying as an alternative to using the built in chatting (after all doing typing and flying at the same time is difficult unless you are on autopilot). Search in the forum for the correct servers on Mumble / Discord.

You might want to start with the ATC Tutorial.

"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
