Download PHP from its web site http://php.net/ .
The download for Windows comes in two forms - installable setup EXE and ZIP archive.
The setup can be installed like any other software. For the ZIP archive format, you will find install.txt with full instructions inside.

Before you can install PHP, you need to have a web server like Apache or IIS installed.

If you are using Ubuntu Linux, then just give the following commands to install Apache and PHP in a terminal window :
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install php5
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5

You can also use WAMP, XAMPP, LAMP, EasyPHP etc. to install Apache, PHP, mySQL, OpenSSL and many other packages without worrying about configuration.

As for learning PHP this is a good place to start : http://www.w3schools.com/php/default.asp

In addition to the information provided in the previous post by Romeo29, I would suggest that you check out the PHP tutorial on http://Tizag.com. I have used it before and I think it's a great tutorial!

Good luck!

I would also highly recommend checking out a PHP book from the library or spending $30 or so buying one. One of the more highly rated books is "PHP and MySQL Web Development", it provides a good fundamental overview as well as a web application case study. It's worth the investment IMO.
