I dont fully understand sockets yet. I was wondering though, I want to make a bot that will connect to a web-site that has frames, submit forms in one frame, and acquire text input from another frame. And could I run this bot without my php just sitting there continuosly loading in the page.

But that are both serverside languages while you are requesting clientside interaction?

You are probably searching for the curl extenstion of php. But that is used to read and write to websites, not particularly to framesets.
You would have to replicate the correct get and post request to the server and do this in the right order.
