I have a function that checks to make sure everything in the form is valid and filled out and I want to make it so if all passes, then it calls another function to create the user account... is this possible?  Do I have to create a class to do this?

Its possible.  ex:

function check()
    //checks stuff
    //if(all is ok){  make_account($user, $pass); }

function make_account($user, $pass)
    //makes account

you can call function from function from function over and over.  :D

If you mean a function within a function:
function myfuncA() {
    // code for function A

    function myfuncB() {
         // code for function B

Then yes. However you have to called function A first before using function b. Example:
function myfuncA() {

    echo "Called function A<br />";

    function myfuncB() {
         echo "Called function B";


// call function a first:

// now we can use function b
