not quite sure what you mean.

are you wanting to use a database to store you product info, prices, images etc.

there is lots of information about this, (sometimes in the archived documentation section)

Asuming you have set up your testing server and have a created a php database connection.

if not, try

dynamic_site_definitions.php

creating_db_connection.php

What you need to do is create a recordset within dreamweaver.
to do this simply create a new php page and use the bindings tab to add a recordset.

with the recordset in place, you can drag and drop the fields you need onto your page

As i said before, there are loads of tutorials and advice for this
