Use a naming convention on every element similar to the following:
<p class="name" id="fieldName_value"></p>

Then on the server you split the id attribute to extract the fieldname and its value. You need to repeat this for the other fields.
By default, you can retrieve the element id via:
$data = $_POST['element_id'];

unless you specified a different value via the options as in:
$(".editme1").editInPlace({
    url: "save.asp",
    element_id:"ID"
    params: "ajax=yes"
  });

In which case you would use:
$data = $_POST['ID'];
