This of course means you can build your form within a for loop (or similar).
So to place 10 skill text boxes in your form:
for ($x=0; $x<10; $x++)
  echo "<INPUT TYPE=\"TEXT\" NAME=\"skill[]\"><br/>";
  // Add other form elements

  // ** OR **

  echo "<INPUT TYPE=\"TEXT\" NAME=\"skill[<?=$x?>]\"><br/>";
  // Add other form elements

> These are session , but put them into an array ?

$_SESSION['skills'] = $_POST['skill']; // Store the skill array
$_SESSION['skys'] = $_POST['sky']; // Store the sky array
$_SESSION['slus'] = $_POST['slu']; // Store the slu array

Dropdown menus are fine (I believe) so you can simply use [] for your form

Don't forget to use print_r() and echo to see what your PHP script is
receiving from the form, it will help understand how to code your script. It
took me a while to get to grips with how form arrays work. (Let's hope I
haven't c0cked up here or that last statement will come back to haunt me !!)

Now I'm off ...  ZZZzzz
