I liked the looks of this tutorial (for getting across the basics quickly):

But, you can take your pick from these:

Define "embed." Are you talking about using an iframe?

include(), though a little more work in some cases, would likely turn out much better.
It does depend on the situation. Anything from iframes to include() to ajax might fit.

I repeat:
Define "embed.""Embed" can mean:Output as part of the document Store the data from the second file within the first file Link to the second file from the first file in such a way that the first file is affected by the contents of the second
Never quote yourself. It looks conceited.

Store the data from the second file within the first file

<?php
$secondFile = <<<EOF
Some data goes here. You can put whatever you like here and it will be stored within the file (in the variable \$secondFile) and not output.
EOF;
?>
