In a lot of cases, if you're looking for a function to do a simple task, somebody on Stackoverflow has asked a similar question and other people have replier. I have found that site very useful. You just need to know which keywords to search for.

If you are absolutely a newbie, checkout http://www.w3schools.com/php/. It's recommended to learn a PHP framework not just plain vanilla PHP such as Laravel.

No and no. W3schools will teach you terrible, insecure, outdated practices. Avoid it like the plague. Also, frameworks are great, but without a foundational understanding of PHP itself, it's going to be too much 'magic' and will likely harm your learning.

PHP is a nice choice seeing the number of web applications currently present and the learning curve is quite easy. What I can say is you can never be a 100% master for any any technology or language. There's always something that you will miss out. To start for basics, you could go through CodeAcademy PHP for initial start. You would require basics of HTML like <table><form> tags to just get started. But, it will only get you through basics of the PHP syntax. It is good for understanding and getting started with the syntax. But, eventually you need to learn writing professional code and maintaining the standards. Also, you need to look out for various approaches followed in the industry to get on with it. Following links will help you to overcome the initial hurdles in syntax as well as approach -

1. PHP: The Right Way
2. Becoming a PHP Professional: The Missing Link
3. How do I grow myself technically?
4. Hypertext Preprocessor
5. SitePoint PHP – Learn PHP, MySQL, SOAP & more
6. learn about frameworks and concepts. To grow, you need to have patience. Find a mentor, plan and set goals with milestones. Eventually, 2-3 years down the line you could be doing great and enjoying it.

I would have the opinion that PHP is a complete technology and i would suggest that you to go through the complete php in detail and learn all the concepts like Sessions etc., after this i would suggest Database Learning . I would also duggest that you make small projects to gain practical knowledge. Projects like i.e a blog are way easier than an e-commerce site,etc.

For the first step, try to watch few lessons on youtube. I recommend starting practice from WordPress CMS.
