the already mentioned Avantfax is a complete php based hylafax front
end.  you may or may not be able to learn from its how to integrate,
it can be pretty complex at points.

For the simplest send-only integration, you just need to generate
compatible image files and exec the sendfax binary from php, and make
a custom notify script for hylafax to call.  a notify script can be
anything you can execute from a linux shell, including a php script.
I do recommend viewing avantfaxes notify script as an example on the
logic flow needed and configuring hylafax to use it.
