Make long url search engine friendly by using fake folder in address bar

I have searched on the internet but can't find a way to disguise a long ugly php url such as www.domain.com/companies.php?id=543 into this:
the folder "companyname" shouldnt really exist. There should be some instructions in .htaccess or something like that (not sure) to show www.domain.com/companies.php?id=543 instead but still keep www.domain.com/companyname in the address bar. I dont want to actually create a folder. The purpose of this is to make it search engine friendly. Is this possible?
All help will be greatly appreciated,

Heya, Miraan.

You're looking for mod_rewrite, an Apache plugin.
