It is a U.S. territory, like Puerto Rico and Bermuda.

No the Philippines is not a US territory
Yes you need a US passport
Even with a real ID you could not board a plane in the US headed for the Philippines without a passport and a ticket back out of the country

The Philippines is an independent country. You do need a passport to travel there.

The Philippines ceased being a US Territory in 1946 so US citizens need a passport to enter the country, and you can visit for up to 30 days as a tourist w/o a visa. You also need the passport to return to the USA.
Note that if you were born after 1973 and your mother was a citizen of the Philippines when you were born then you probably qualify for Philippines citizenship. Getting a Philippines passport would let you visit the Philippines as long as you want without a visa.
If you get a Philippines passport in addition to your US passport then you show both passports to the airline check in agent when leaving the USA. Show only your Philippines passport to the Immigration Officer when you enter and exit the Philippines. Show both passports to the airline check in agent when returning to the USA. Show only your US passport to the Immigration Officer when entering the USA.
