I has, but you get that...

Short answer is no.  PHP is server-side, Javascript is client-side.  You
can get variables from php to javascript when your php generates the
page to be sent to the browser but you can only get variables back from
php when you use browser to server communications (that's usually a form
- be it get or post method, or a cookie).

You'll need to create all the javascript from you php page as it
generates and then wait for it all to be done client-side and submitted
back to the server.
