Novice questions

I know nearly zero about Internet access through tools that are not the
regular graphic browsers.

But I now need/must to:

0- access to a secure web site with userID/Passwd.

1- download from it a html page
2- change some content in it (buttons/menus)
3- resubmit it to the same web site
4- receive back the html response
5- convert the html response to text

Step 0 must occur ONCE only. Steps 1-5 will occur hundreds of times and must
be fast!

What would be the easiest way to implement a scheme/program like that?
Is using LibCurl the proper approach?
Can Curl command line do the same?
Better to work on C/C++ (which I know) or PHP (which I don't know...)

I'd be really glad to hear any comment/suggestion.

Thanks & Regards.
