Looking up the difference between programming languages and scripting languages might be a good place to start.

A1. PHP can be used for web applications and desktop applications (default commandline, but I know there is atleast a gtk+ library for it), but it is mainly used for web
A2. PHP has the ability to serialize objects and there are a few ORM (like Hibernate) libraries out there as well.
A3. PHP can interact in some way with web services and of course some websites actually have PHP specific API's, you'll have to look into this to really find out how much there is...
