So, I was thinking of trying to make a social media site using Repl's HTML editor, along with NodeJS and PHP (for the forms). Could someone tell me any possible bumps in the road?

Possibly a DB or file issue could happen. The biggest roadblock would be Database usage. I suggest using instead of the local DB.
Other than that, it is totally possible! Good Luck!

It could work, but you may overload the servers?

@ash15khng I am planning to host using a third party source, like GoDaddy.

Totally possible. Could try firebase to hold all the data.
