They probably have some kind of torrent downloading application running which they can programatically add torrents to, such as the transmission-cli torrent app. Their PHP scripts would just take the .torrent file and queue it up into transmission by running the appropiate command using exec. They could track the status of the download by issuing other status/information commands and parsing their outputs.
