Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Sorry for the noob question but apparently there is a limit of 1 request per second when using Nominatim. I'm using this through PHP. Would I have to manually limit requests to 1 per second or is this done automatically when sending a request through to the API?

You have to do that on your end. A simple sleep(1); in PHP after each API request already helps.
