dropdown generation

I need some help in making the html pages in php in the attachements. Design I can manipulate. I want this in php/javascript basically scripts that can pass information from dropdowns and create new dropdowns accordingly.

This is more a JQuery question than a PHP one, though you can certainly do this in PHP if you prefer. Here is a crude JQuery example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.10.1.min.js"></script>
    <style>
        #traveler-count span, #traveler-details span {
          display: block;
        }
        #traveler-details div {
            margin: .5em auto;
        }
        #traveler-details div div {
            margin: auto;
        }
    </style>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="traveler-count">
        <span>
          <select id="selAdults" name="adults">
            <option>0</option>
            <option>1</option>
            <option>2</option>
            <option>3</option>
            <option>4</option>
          </select>
          <label for="adults">Adults</label>
        </span>
        <span>
          <select id="selChildren" name="children">
            <option>0</option>
            <option>1</option>
            <option>2</option>
            <option>3</option>
            <option>4</option>
          </select>
          <label for="children">Children</label>
        </span>
        <span>
          <select id="selInfants" name="infants">
            <option>0</option>
            <option>1</option>
            <option>2</option>
            <option>3</option>
            <option>4</option>
          </select>
          <label for="infants">Infants</label>
        </span>
    </div>
    <div id="traveler-summary">
      <span>Total Travelers:</span>
      <span id="sumAdult">Adults: 0</span>
      <span id="sumChild">Children: 0</span>
      <span id="sumInfant">Infants: 0</span>
    </div>
    <div id="traveler-details">
      <div id="detAdult"></div>
      <div id="detChild"></div>
      <div id="detInfant"></div>
    </div>
    <script>
      var rowTemplate = '<div></div>';

      var txtLastNameTemplate = '<input type="text" />';
      var selLocationTemplate = '<select><option>London</option><option>Madrid</option><option>Athens</option></select>';

      function setItems(containerId, itemCount, travelerTemplate) {
        var container = $(containerId);

        container.empty();

        for (var i = 0; i < itemCount; i++) {
          var row = $(rowTemplate);

          row.append($(travelerTemplate));
          row.append($(selPrefixTemplate));
          row.append($(txtFirstNameTemplate));
          row.append($(txtLastNameTemplate));
          row.append($(selLocationTemplate));

          container.append(row);
        }
      }

      $(document).ready(function() {
        $('#selAdults').change(function() {
          $('#sumAdult').text('Adults: ' + $(this).val());
          setItems('#detAdult', $(this).val(), selAdultTemplate);
        });

        $('#selChildren').change(function() {
          $('#sumChild').text('Children: ' + $(this).val());
          setItems('#detChild', $(this).val(), selChildTemplate);
        });

        $('#selInfants').change(function() {
          $('#sumInfant').text('Infants: ' + $(this).val());
          setItems('#detInfant', $(this).val(), selInfantTemplate);
        });
      });
    </script>
  </body>
</html>
