It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Using Quantun GIS, for example,you can accomplish all of what you asked. QGIS has plugins for uploading shapefiles into PostGIS, and a DB manager plugins for handling the data. And you can, of course, view PostGIS based spatial layers in QGIS. If you choose this route, then after installing QGIS, have a look at the online manual (a work in progress) and yu can post back here with more specific questions.
