> how a specific VALUE that is entered into a FORM-FIELD can be sent to a .php script

The form's method tag, <form) ... action= ... method=... </form>, specifies where user input values go when the user clicks the Submit button, usually 'GET', in which case they appear on the command line and in the $_GET associative array, or 'POST', in which case they do not appear on the cmdline, and appear in the $_POST associative array.

But there's much more to it than that. You need to read about html forms, then read about PHP design and coding of html forms, then work through a few of the many good web tutorials on PHP forms.
