thanks Dave!

I forgot to say that you need to cut (or bend) pin16 of pic before soldering...
because to simplify trace I decided to run MCLR through pin16 (RC0) but it was not a really good idea because when programming MCLR goes 12V and then "clamping diode" of RC0 pin short-circuits to vdd (3 volts) ! I was lucky not to damage pic or pickit3 programmer.

You need a pickit3 programmer/debugger or china clone (half price, about 15$) like the one Dave ordered. It is worth buying it rather than making it because it is not as simple as an AVR/atmel programmer that is basically an usb/rs232 link... unless you are a real DIY fan !

You also need to download free MPLAB 8.xx IDE. I also tried cross platform MPLABX IDE but had some issue with debugging: "run to cursor" function does not work (or perhaps I don't know how to make it works).
