Contact.PHP of CF7

My static web template has a contact form known as "CF7". I have no problem with customizing CSS/HTML codes of the form but I can't design a contact.php page due to the fact that I'm unfamiliar with PHP coding. There are a lot of online tutorials to learn from but my question is, can I use ANY contact.php page designed for any CF7?

Code:
<section id="contact" class=" contact"><div class="container"><div class="row  row-fluid ">
    <div class="col-sm-8 col-md-offset-3 col-md-6 col-sm-offset-2 margin-top-140   text-center ">
        <div class="wrapper"><div class="animate fadeInUp" data-animation="fadeInUp" style="animation-duration: 0.8s;     animation-delay: 0s;     -moz-animation-duration: 0.8s;     -moz-animation-delay: 0s;     -webkit-animation-duration: 0.8s;     -webkit-animation-delay: 0s; ">
            <div class=" section-heading text-center">
                    <h1 class="heading heading-crossed">Contact</h1><p class="additional-heading">LOREM IPSUM.</p>

If you want to run php the site needs to be installed on a server or you need to use something like xampp to turn your PC into a server.

CF7 needs a lot more than contact.php to make it work. In fact I'm surprised it's even part of your template as CF7 is a wordpress plugin not a standalone form. Unless this is a hacked version for static sites. So to answer your question - you can only use the contact.php they have supplied. Anything else will break the site.

Should also point out that ALL contact forms will only work if the site is installed on a server. Two reasons:
1. Form processing is done server side (using PHP, NET, ASP etc)
2. The mail/smtp function only works if you are connected to an email server.

a hacked version
LOL. HONESTLY I hope you don't consider that to be "Plagiarism" because I did a lot of things to customize the wordpress/original version. Too many elements got deleted or replaced by my own elements. The template no longer looks like the original/wordpress version.

So that's the first step to take. I see...
I haven't uploaded my html template to Cpanel. I'm planning to do that later because I haven't finished editing the template.

Ah. If this was a wordpress theme the contact form won't ever work. It needs wordpress hooks to function.

Ok....
Do you mean use the cpanel filemanger to upload to the server? Cpanel is just an admin portal, all it does is connect to the server. You would be much better off using FTP to upload the files. Filezilla is my FTP client of choice.
