Best way to turn Delphi into a database engine for WEB.

I'm confused:  Do you or do you not want a database? I gather that you don't want it to be MySQL, but does that mean that SQL Server, Oracle, etc. are possibilites? Writing your own database engine is no small feat--the big guys have large development staffs (and budgets) for a reason.

Your website can be build with javascrpt framework such as "AngularJS".
