    If I want to make a page called contact.php and want only my contact page to use it, how would I do this?

    I have my permalinks setup to %category% .

    I wouldn't create an actual file called contact.php.

    Just create a Page called Contract.

    Then put the 'code' for your contact plugin (e.g. <!--contact form-->) in that pages content.

    That's it.

    Most contact form plugins include directions on doing something like that.

    Codex is your friend - http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    Adding

    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: Contact Page
    */
    ?>

    at top of that contact page file that's compatible with WP and your theme, and upload to server within your theme's folder. Then create a page, and choose "Contact Page" on the right sidebar under "Page Template", publish the page and you're good to go.
