Hello Guys I need help urgent. I am beginner in PHP

What I want to fetch html tag to tag files

That code is Javascript, not PHP.
PHP would be better to do this with though. Even better would be to get rid of the old .html files. 100,000 files is a hellofalot of files though.
Fetching data from them is a breeze so long as they are well formed. If they are, you can use XML handling to fetch and find what you need. If they are not, then it will be unpleasant.
What is in these files? Are they following a logical naming convention? You may not need to actually do anything with them aside from using PHP to fetch template based off of them, but that will only work if there is a method in identifying them properly. You cannot loop through 100K files at a time looking for information; that would just take far to long.
This of course all assumes that these pages are all you will ever have. You need to work to conversion of them and storing the data into a database, then serving dynamically. If these are batches of files that will constantly keep climbing, PHP isn't the language to do this with. You want to look into something much faster such as C.
