Can I customize a PayPal donate form? 0r, am I better off passing custom variable to PayPal and having PayPal pass them back?

Last Modified: 2016-03-24

I need to capture two additional fields of data which my standard PayPal donate form does not automatically capture.

I need to capture the following two additional fields:

1) Title/Occupation
and -
2) Employer

My questions are:

1) Can I alter the PayPal donate form to capture these fields? If so, how?
or -
2) Can I pass these two custom variables to PayPal and then have PayPal pass them back?

If I can alter the PayPal donate form, how do I do so?

If I have to pass these two custom variables, how do I do so? AND, how do I get them back to capture them via PHP/MySQL or other solution?

Thank you for your help!
