verilog rs232

You need two things:
1. RS-232 transceiver - IC which translates the levels of CMOS/TTL to RS-232. for example MAX3232 - MAXIM
2. In your FPGA you should have a UART block. You may get from OPENCORE.org

verilog+rs232

It is not hard to program your device by interfacing with RS232.
First of all, i agree wat KHaila has commented you.
if you want to learn more you can do some research on UART (Universal Asynchronous Transmitter/ Receiver).
