A broadsword is a versatile weapon, so medium characters may wield it two-handed to deal 1 extra damage. Small characters must wield it two-handed, and they deal no extra damage for doing so.
Ardents, avengers, barbarians, battleminds, fighters, paladins, rangers, wardens, and warlords are proficient with all military melee weapons, including the broadsword. Assassins and swordmages are proficient with military heavy blades, including the broadsword.
Other classes do not have proficiency with the broadsword as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
