in Q1 is as easy as a READLN(DATA), where DATA is the VAR of a TYPE where you put what ever the user inputs and it has to be the same as the TYPE of the VAR, for ex., if you want the user to respon with a number (0..9) you declare de VAR like so:

VAR
    DATA: BYTE; {is byte and not integer cos you don't need to spend a lot of memory                          1byte is a lot of mem, in a data base with a million records that is}

BEGIN
  WRITE('Please enter a number from 0 trugh 9: '); {You always tell the user what to do}
  READLN(DATA);  {You place the number in the VAR DATA}
  WRITELN('The number you entered has... ',DATA); {and thats it}
END.

but if you want to save it to a disk, that depends on wether you want to keep the DATA the user inputs every time you run the program or to erase it and saves a new DATA, ok.

Using RESET to append to a FILE:

VAR
  DATA: INTEGER;
  FF: FILE OF INTEGER;

BEGIN
  ASSIGN(FF,'DATAFILE.DAT');
  RESET(FF);
  SEEK(FF,EOF(FF));
  REPEAT
    WRITE('Please enter a number from 0 thru 9: '); {You always tell the user what to do}
    READLN(DATA);  {You place the number in the VAR DATA}
    WRITELN('The number you entered has... ',DATA); {and thats it}
    WRITE(FF,DATA); {You write the data to the file}
  UNTIL DATA=0;  {until the user press 0}
  CLOSE(FF);
END.

Using REWRITE to create a FILE:

VAR
  DATA: INTEGER;
  FF: FILE OF INTEGER;

BEGIN
  ASSIGN(FF,'DATAFILE.DAT');
  REWRITE(FF);
  REPEAT
    WRITE('Please enter a number from 0 thru 9: '); {You always tell the user what to do}
    READLN(DATA);  {You place the number in the VAR DATA}
    WRITELN('The number you entered has... ',DATA); {and thats it}
    WRITE(FF,DATA); {You write the data to the file}
  UNTIL DATA=0;  {until the user press 0}
  CLOSE(FF);
END.


In Q2 you want to print this record

USES
  PRINTER;
TYPE
  HOTELTYPE = RECORD OF
     SERNO: INTEGER;
     GUESTNAME: STRING[30];
     TELNO: STRING[8];
     CHECKI: STRING[8];
     CHECKO: STRING[8];
     PAYMODE: BYTE;
  END;
VAR
  HOTEL: ^HOTELTYPE;

PROCEDURE GETDATA(DATA: HOTELTYPE);
BEGIN
  WRITE('Input the Serial No..' );
  READLN(DATA.SERNO);
  .
  .
  .
  WRITE('Input the Pay Mode..' );
  READLN(DATA.PAYMODE);
END;

PROCEDURE PRINTDATA(DATA: HOTELTYPE);
BEGIN
  WRITELN(PRN,'Serial No..',DATA.SERNO );
  .
  .
  .
  WRITELN(PRN,'Input the Pay Mode..',DATA.PAYMODE);
END;

BEGIN
  NEW(HOTEL,SIZEOF(HOTELTYPE));
  GETDATA(HOTEL);
  PRINTDATA(HOTEL);
END.

Please notify me if this wasn't your Q1 or if the proggys did not work

yuk, UPPERCASE, looks like COBOL. ;)  use lower case when programming it makes it tonnes easier to read.  C++ is case-sensitive, you have no choice.  :)
