You have at least three options:

1. use cURL
2. use fsockopen()
3. use fopen() with stream functions for context (if you have PHP 5.0.0 or greater).

The user contributed notes have some examples of using fsockopen() with a connection through a proxy. I've never used it for that, because I prefer cURL.

Nope, it's a set of library functions. See the manual page for cURL.

I don't know if there are classes with the same functionality as cURL, but, as far as I can tell, there are none from PHP itself. You can build your own or search and download from the net.
