What is the best audio editing software to edit sound effects for simple games, like beeps, chimes, taps, button clicks etc.

I'm a noob so I will prefer an easy and cheap one before I delve deep into more advance softwares.

Also, where can I find various sound libraries and effects? For instance I want the sound for the English alphabet a to z in short & quick female voice.

Note: Not sure if this is the right stackexchange network to ask this. If I'm asking in the wrong place, please redirect me.
