What are things I need to know to ask and say when I receive a job offer? And, conversely, when I don't?

I had a second interview for my first professional, post-college, "Welcome to the Real World" job on Friday. They're calling tomorrow with their decision. I feel good about the interviews, and want to be prepared
if when they call to offer me the position. What do I need to know to ask?
The job would involve me moving across the state, to a much bigger (and thus, more expensive) city. This is a lower paying job (the range they gave was $20K-$30K), so I imagine some salary negotiation might need to happen. Is it out of line to ask, and HOW do I ask for them to pay to move me? What are all the things to consider?
Obviously a rather open-ended question, but any career advice sites only give very specific advice, as well as other AskMeFi questions.
Oh, and, if it matters, this is for a project coordinator position in the alternative energy industry.
