PHP is server side. The only way to get things from client to server or from server to client is through HTTP requests. In the browser, traditionally HTTP requests to the server are results of clicking links or submitting forms. The response replaces the entire current page in those cases.

php (or any other server-language) is not oriented on document's elements. It can not "catch" the user's actions.
