    there are several options you have to consider and there is no good general answer for all usecases. first you would need to consider a few things like:

    * should the login be built into the website?
    * are you considering to limit access to specific ip's?
    * are you considering to allow access by VPN?
    * is basic http auth enough?
    * are you considering to allow certificates (i.e. SSH, OpenPGP)?
    * how easy should it be to maintain it?
    * integrated into the website?
    * with database backend?
    * only by editing a file on the server itself?
    * ...

    once determined what you want, there are plenty of howtos around that can help you implementing it. but once you know what you want, it's easy to find using your favorite web search engine.

    I don't know about facebook and I do not understand what you are after. Sorry, can't help you.

    Usernames and passwords are generally stored in a database (with the password usually being stored as a hash, not as the actual password, for security's sake). Any username/password combination in that database is valid.

    When you register on a website, the chosen username and password are added to the database.

    It is trivial to simply do this yourself, instead of going through a registration form. Alternatively, you could write a registration page that only you have access to, and do it yourself.
