I am currently looking to download a local map of my area, and store it on a server with my website. Do I require any special frame works to display the MAP ??

I would also like to be able to input lat and long coordinates to the map to show real time movement with an icon, can anyone please assist me with my project. I code in all web development code, so I am open to any suggestions.

I will be hosting it with a linux OS system, out putting it in a browser.

The first place I'd look would be the "serving tiles" section of the switch2osm website. That'll give you a bit of background about how the "map" actually works.

Next, have a look at the "using tiles" section, which describes using OpenLayers or Leaflet to display the map. It's using a toolkit such as that that you can "display something at a certain latitude and longitude". Neither OpenLayers nor Leaflet are specifically just OSM projects - there are lots of examples of what you can do with them elsewhere on the web.
