I want to create a web interface to control which file is being played by the media server...a and possibly store information about the current song on a db. Is this something I can do with XMBC/PHP or is there some other better way to do this?

XBMC allows for plugins written in Python, there is also already a web front-end and API. You could write your own PHP scripts to interface with the API but it's probably worth checking out the existing interface first.
