I believe Flash 5+ has form elements.
They would behave the same way as typical forms and form elements in a web page, they would be sent to the server via a HTTP GET or POST request.

If you have Flash already, the online help has a lot of info, as well as the books delivered with Flash.
If not, you can download a free, fully functional trial version that's good for 30 days from www.macromedia.com
Text boxes for user input are supported, as are lots of other interactive features. Tutorials are included. Download it and play with it

Within Flash 5, there are very handy tutorials, etc., to get you started. Also just a general search on the web will yield many sites where there are additional tutorials, etc., that will get you going very quickly.
