Asking on a forum means, by definition, that the task cannot be urgent. If the task is urgent, you should either contact your site support group for assistance or contract to get the work performed.

Mainframes do not have "buttons" on the screen. Mainframes use PF keys to do similar functions -- but the way they work is completely different than a PC environment; unlike a PC nothing on the mainframe screen is transferred to the computer until the appropriate key (clear, enter, PF or PA key, etc) is hit.

IBM has a number of documents about using web interfaces with CICS -- even CICS legacy applications. I recommend you go to the IBM web site, search for CICS and web and start reading the documentation. This will take some time but it will be time well spent.
