You should rework your question to let people understand easily whyt you really want to know.
Meanwhile I point you to a nice implemented GUI for the Overpass API: http://overpass-turbo.eu/ Maybe this is something you are looking for..?

... indeed ... overpass-turbo is a kind of user interface for queries via http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API

Read all documentation there if you can reach your aim of if you get stuck somewhere.

Also there are already similar questions like yours on this FAQ site. Search for keywords like filter, export, elements or similar.
