Is it possible to automatically have data sent through a form converted to a PDF and submitted to the recipient? If so, how is this done?

yes, it's possible.
the hard way involves a lot of code, the easy way is to use pdf-forms and automatically fill them using fdf .... if you'd google for something like 'pdf fdf php', you'll find more information

Thanks for your help. Actually, I was wondering if data submitted by a HTML form can automatically be sent to an e-mail recipient as a PDF. I apologize for being unclear.

html form -> submitted to webserver -> form.php recieves the data and uses fpdf library to create a pdf file -> form.php sends the email and attaches the .pdf
