cURL, PHP, Forms and Cookies and passing it all - where to begin?

P: 1
Forgive me - I am a bit new to cURL and passing form elements from one site to the next...

If you can help with a HOW TO or by holding my hand a bit with examples - so I can learn - I would be in debt to you and very appreciative -...

1) I have several external sites with simple forms (see
) where I collect data on servers I own or have access to...

2) I have, by certain trade association restrictions, been forced to use a single 3rd party web site provider to gain, or rather to have my site visitors, gain access to the data they seek (real estate MLS search site).. the issue is that 3rd party site is basic crap templated junk with no ability for me to edit anything to make it even a slight SEO'ed site... BUT I can send traffic to a single login page they host that I can otherwise frame or whatnot and avoid sending traffic to their poorly designed web pages and thus still give my site visitors access to the data they need... but that site requires registration as well..

aa: I do not want to have to have site visitors register twice.

How can I use httpretreiver, curl or other to collect form field information in the forms I host and pass it to the 3rd party site - plus grab that site's cookie and session info so visitor registers on my forms and is passed seemlessly thry to the search site already logged in??? the site I am sending all traffic to is:

please give me a hand, or send me a link to where I can learn more.
