flatland or street & what kind of hubs?

I did my best to search for this, but couldn't find much.
If there is already a thread please just post a link & point me in the right direction.

So a few friends got me into BMX, blah blah, you've heard it before...

I want to do some flatland and street riding, but I know the bikes for each differ somewhat.
Anyone know of a bike/brand I could use for both?
If not, I'm willing to build one myself, so any suggestions for a good setup?

Question #2...
I've been told freecoaster hubs are common on bikes setup for flatland, but that's all.
Which kind of hub, cassette or freecoaster, would be best for riding both street and flatland?

if you get a freecoaster, you can do both just fine
