You can play any music on any guitar, typically you tend to find Les Pauls and Telecasters but it really doesn't matter.

As far as learning the music, just go out there and do it - for southern rock I'd say start off with Creedence Clearwater Revival as their songs are pretty straightforward. You should also look at Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Neil Young's stuff with Crazy Horse, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers...I'm no expert on the genre though.

Definitely start with some CCR though because you'll be able to nail most of their songs pretty quickly, there's usually a fairly simple chord backing

Honestly, from what little I know, it sounds to me like any guitar with a moderately "hot" bridge pickup will do the trick if you know how to work with the EQ. Teles are popular because of that real "twangy" sound of the bridge pickup. But honestly, a BC Rich could work if you EQ'd it right.

As for bands, I don't really know. I'd second Steve's recommendations; they seem like as good a start as any in the genre, though I don't know it well at all.
