There are several issues I need help with:

1. What software should I use to create the sign and its tool paths and then send them to a Biesse CNC? I have a limited budget so I was thinking of something for under $300. (The Cut 2D program by Ventric ($199) seems like an option)

2. What wood is suitable for this project?

Any other suggestions would be greatly Appreciated

Many thanks
Try to post your CNC question in the CNC forum too - to get more opnions.

Personally I think you will need VCARVE rather than Cut2D. Signs are NOT 2D they are at least 2.5D.
Cut2D can produce simpler signs with "STICK FONTS" and I think not good enough for SERIF (fat and thin) type lettering and art work.
Talk to the MULTICAM CNC machine people. They have good understanding of wooden Sign Making - hardware and software. One of my church member who already had a CNC router, bought 2 multicam CNC router + VCARVE from Multicam because Multicam people demoed how to cut nice serif letterings and even chinese characters using their hardware + software bundle.

Best Regards
