There are plenty of such scripts already out there, perhaps you should look into buying one already made and saving yourself some time and money.
Yes, there is a maximum file upload directive in the php.ini file (and I think this can be overridden by a directive in the htaccess file). However, many browsers will time out or error when uploading such a big file as it will take so long to upload. This is going by the fact that most people don't have very fast upload speeds.
However, as VT6 said, there will be lots of premade scripts out there to allow you to upload files - and in most languages you want.
