Is there an interface on Act 2008 that I can use from PHP or a command line to check if a contact exists or to add a new contact?

To check if a contact exists, you can read the database for OLEDB (or ODBC if you have ACT! Premium)

To add a contact, you need to use the ACT! SDK, which requires .Net ... there are a few products to talk to .Net from PHP on the 'net

Also, for future reference, you might add the ACT! Zone to any questions on ACT!:
