how do I get php to connect automatically to GeoServer?? so I do not need to go into GeoServer manually by entering the username and password. And how to queries on PostGIS can directly publish and request layer from GeoServer?

You can use the GeoServer REST API. With it, you can create and retrieve workspaces, featuretypes/layers, intereact with PostGIS, etc, from within your PHP application. Refer to the REST documentation and PHP REST Examples for details.
