I'll have to take a look at an app I developed at work but I can give you the essence of the process.
You have to be able to identify the text area in the HTML before you can write to it and you also have to identify the link before you can "click" on it.
I'll provide more information tomorrow. ;-)

Okay, I found the code (see below).
In the code snippet labelled {Basic information}, you see what you need to find in the html, how to set the value, and then what you need to find and 'click'.  (This snippet is from an app that access the TxDoT web site to verify VIN information.)
The declaration of the fHTMLElement is as follows:
 fHtmlElement    : IHtmlElement;

    {Basic information}
    TempResult  :=  FindElement('input','name=vin_1');
    if TempResult
    then begin
      fHtmlElement.setAttribute('value',VIN,0);
      if FindElement('input','type=submit')
      then begin
        fHtmlElement.click;
      end; {if}
    end; {if}
