Here are 2 ways to accomplish what you are trying to do:

Option 1:
You have a widget which inherits Fusion.Tool.Canvas.
Use the mousedown even to get the coordinates clicked
Then use 
"var p = this.getMap().getEventPosition(e);" to get the event position
"var gp = this.getMap().pixToGeo(p.x, p.y);" to get the N/E at that position

Then send your northing and easting to a PHP page and use it to generate a
spatial filter (you may want to create a mgPolygon from your N/E as your
spatialfilter in order to make sure you cover the point)

Return the selected point, and send it to another page to create your pop up
window populated with the relevant information.

Option 2:
Use the URL feature in studio to show a link.  Use expressions to pass the
points information into the link, and have the link directed to a custom
page which will populate itself with the relevant data.

Seeing as you are new to MapGuide, I would highly recommend option 2, as it
requires very little coding and is very easy and user friendly.  I have
attached a photo of what the URL maptip looks like in my map.  In the
picture, the user hovers there mouse over a parcel and the maptip pops up
with a link to the parcel's page on the county's website.  All I have to do
is pass the parcel number in the link, which is all done by studio.
