I would like to make a website that acts as a sort of game lobby. On some games, like Call of Duty, it can be hard to find other players, so instead of searching in the game, they can go online and see who else is online and playing and match up quickly.
The website will list some games and maybe some sub-categories for those games and show who else is online and looking for people. What language would I use to do this and where can I learn it? Can this, in any way, be done with PHP?

Yes it can be done in PHP, and I even think this is the preferred language, as it's cheap (free), powerful, and easy to learn.
You will need other languages to develop the games themselves in, though.
If you get really a lot of visitors, PHP might not suffice, but that's a worry for later.
Mind though, that developing a service like this is not an easy task. By the tone of your question, I feel you haven't got a whole lot of experience in this area (web development), so I'd figure out first if you're up to this task.
