PHP is a server-side language.
To get anything to interact with the operating system, you will need to use an application language like (but not limited to) C, C++, Java, or C#.

Thank you forceflow :)..can i ask is it possible PHP can communicate to other language like C# or Java ?

Yes, through Services. You can either make a PHP Restful Service and your C#/Java Application can interact with that service.

The desktop application needs to be the one that initiates the interaction, right?
It'd be scary if a website can trigger something to happen on my desktop!

Yes, the desktop application would call out to the Restful service as needed.

You can make pure css popup's using an a:hover attribute. http://www.cssplay.co.uk/ has a few examples.
