One of my friends knows someone that has his own online database. I have been trying to find, but it isn't at a web address (as far as I could tell). I would like to know how this would be possible, and if it is, what language would I have to learn. I am an expert in HTML, but that's as far as it goes.

as you seem to have spotted you can not access an online database directly via HTTP, you can however connect using telnet or SSH to a remote database if you have a valid username and password & the db is configured to accept remoth conections.
For accessing a database via a scripting language you have a fair choice of languages to choose from PHP,ASP,JSP,PHP,PERL,PHP,CFM and finally PHP (sorry spooks;))
all of the above can connect to various databases etc some to some extent, question is what exactly you want to do and where you want to do it - we need more info if we are to be af much help

You almost forgot PHP. That one works well too. :)
