Hi, need help with a float in window hooked to MySQL

I am countyfairgrounds.net - I do html5 and css3 and am here to learn stuff... like javascript I have a immediate problem and I don't know where to go or what courses to take to solve it. I am creating a new page (with my PHP guy) http://www.countyfairgrounds.net/testwebsitedesign/test.php My php guy would like us to have a basic list of the events on this page and a click url more button for more info - (under each event listing) AND when clicked it would darken the background of the screen and a box would pen in the center with more information about the particular event.. Or, I suppose we could just float a box in with more information about the event ( it would have to have clickable links in it however). What technology is this? and where do I go to learn it ASAP. Oh the float in window needs obviously to be hooked to our database .
