Dating Customer Service Area

Dating Customer Service Area
We have a very simple Admin area for our dating website. Currently it authenticates our Customer Service Representatives against a MySQL table and gives them some simple functions. We are running php/apache on Linux so work must be done via SSH.

We wish to add some new functions to search a sql table for users by different criteria (email, login, user id), view user information and perform updates on that table to change this and other tables using the user id.

We also wish to add additional access levels to this admin area. Each admin user would be assigned different groups and have access to different links in the admin area depending on groups. For example, only the Accounting flag would be able to access financial reports, only Custom Service flag would be able to change passwords. An admin user can be a member of multiple groups.
