To insert data inot the database use the followng query:
[!--sql--][div class=\'sqltop\']SQL[/div][div class=\'sqlmain\'][!--sql1--][span style=\'color:blue;font-weight:bold\']INSERT[/span] INTO table_name (column1, column2, ...) VALUES (column1_value, column2_value, ...) [!--sql2--][/div][!--sql3--]

For updating a database use the following query:
[!--sql--][div class=\'sqltop\']SQL[/div][div class=\'sqlmain\'][!--sql1--][span style=\'color:blue;font-weight:bold\']UPDATE[/span] table_name SET column_name=some_new_value WHERE some_col=some_value [!--sql2--][/div][!--sql3--]

For your third question, you want to look into the MAX mysql function.

Also here are a few turtorials on SQL Syntax:
