Dynamically populated form for Insert?? It can't be this hard.

Let me simplify this even more.

If I have 1 table.
ID Name Image Gender
1 name1 image1.jpg male
2 name2 image2.jpg female
3 name3 image3.jpg male
4 name4 image4.jpg male
5 name5 image5.jpg female

Now I need an insert form for a second table where I match up two of the subjects, (1 male & 1 Female), making a pair.
I want two dynamic drop downs that are populated from this table. But rather than having all subject's name included in both table, I want just the males in one drop down menu and just the females in the other.

So far, I have created two record sets based on this one table. Here is what I have.

mysql_select_db($database_dbCMS, $dbCMS);

$query_rsMales = "SELECT * FROM tblBreedersp WHERE sex = 'Male'";
$rsMales = mysql_query($query_rsMales, $dbCMS) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsMales = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsMales);
$totalRows_rsMales = mysql_num_rows($rsMales);

mysql_select_db($database_dbCMS, $dbCMS);
$query_rsFemales = "SELECT * FROM tblBreedersp WHERE sex = 'Female'";
$rsFemales = mysql_query($query_rsFemales, $dbCMS) or die(mysql_error());
$row_rsFemales = mysql_fetch_assoc($rsFemales);
$totalRows_rsFemales = mysql_num_rows($rsFemales);

This works fine but I can't seem to populate the related hidden fields when their names are selected. I found a really cool Javascript that works, but there seems to be some conflicts between it and what WA wants on the page. It uses an array object. But I would like to do this with straight php if I can.

How do I create two arrays that loop through and give one menu the females and one menu the males? And include the other information as it inserts them into the new table?
