If you have a little experience with FORTRAN, try http://www.netlib.org/toms/690 It is capable to handle parabolicelliptic PDEs coupled with ODEs. Otherwise, you will have to discretize the secondorder derivatives in your PDEs and solve the resulting system of ODEs for the solution variables in each grid point using ODE15s,e.g..
