Several answers could come handy for your request, I will try to mention few:

  1. Passing information to other pages could be done by either POST or GET requests in e.g. sending product id's and handling them with the $_POST, $_GET or $_REQUEST superglobals . Or you may store the chosen products in a temporary cookie/session and catch them at the cart page with $_COOKIE or $_SESSION
  2. You may update the database entries at the cart page when the request is received and validated. Or if you are heading to dynamic content and interval-based updates, you may need to use AJAX requests and jQuery is what I suggest using for that
  3. This depends on the method you used to update.
