I need help creating a multi-selection/multifunction, entry form that submits to a database. any advice as to where to start?

I then will need help creating the the database for which the information will be submitted to/stored on. any advice as to where to start?

Lastly, I need help creating a retrieval form to search the database and display the relevant information it has found to the end users. any advice as to where to start?

I'm pretty new to web development myself so I'm not sure if this will be much help, but if your web hosting service has PHP and MySQL available you might want to consider using them. They are VERY popular, which means there's a tremendous amount of information available on using them.

If you go that route and you're the type of person who can learn well from a book, "Head First PHP & MySQL" by Beighly and Morrison should serve you well. There are plenty of examples showing how to create HTML forms that use PHP scripts to access a MySQL database, as well as info on setting up the database itself.
