That's a little confusing.  The form isn't a problem since it just sends the data to the PHP page.  You have to separate the data for the two tables though and make two separate inserts.  You can't do them both in one operation.

First update first table and get the success status then update the second table. If during the update in second table, success status fails then rollback the updation in the first table also.
I hope you got it.

After an INSERT you can get the AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY value with something like this:

$id  = $mysqli->insert_id;

The assumption here is that $mysqli is the data base connection object.  You MUST acquire the insert_id property immediately after the query and before any other SQL operations are run.

If there is any chance of a race condition, you probably want to consider using a transaction or LOCK TABLES around these two INSERT statements.

I don't think phpMyAdmin is necessarily the right tool.

This tells about MySQL Transactions.  If you want to be able to roll back the INSERT, then table locking is not really adequate by itself.
