I'm not sure how to do this at all. It's going to be complex because you
can't just pass variables through the URL and you have to maintain their
session. Depending on how they implement that is going to make it

All I can suggest is that you read up on the cURL section of the manual
and any other documents about it you can find. I think that's the best
option to start on a project like this...
