First the best site to start with for learning PHP is
the home of PHP. Should note for you that php.net is several languages so you will be able to understand it more easily.
But it sounds like you need to store the data that is being submitted so you will need a database. Usually most web hosts provide at least a MySQL database with their service. And PHP works real good with MySQL. But if they didn't give you a MySQL database PHP does work with several other database types. You will need to find out what you have to get started.
So after that if you know how to make a form in HTML after that it is just a matter of knowing how to get the submitted data out of the super global, $_POST. And then store it in a database and then on the Admin page retrieve it.
So beyond that if need more help we will need to know what type of database you have. And really many here shy away form just giving you all the code so it would be to your best interest to look up a tutorial on PHP form submission and validation. And there are 100's of them on the web so you should be able to get most of it yourself. And then we can help you with the fine details.
