You do have a 64bit processor - core 2 duos are 64bit. However, ML is very specific about what models it will or won't run on (list here).

If you circumvent this restriction, you'll find yourself with more headaches than benefits. You've got a machine that is nearly six years old and trying to run ML on that will hurt (simply put). In fact, I had a 2008 MB and that started to show its age with regular use of Lion.

If you need a word processor, there's always LibreOffice, MS Office 2011 or older versions of iWork. Given these choices, and speaking as a student, I'd recommend Office 2011.
