When you are only just learning Java, know a little C++ and your question is
how to model, your chances are pretty much zero to be accepted in an Indie Team.
Your experience in "HTML/CSS/PHP/MySQL" will not really help you much unfortunately.
First get your skills up, which might take a year or two, then make your first game
and complete it. By then you'll have the experience to contribute something in a team
If you would start an Indie Team by yourself, with your current skills, see it as a learning-
experience only. Don't try MMORPGs
Tetris and Space Invaders are the ways to go.
