Not directly as you describe. Wget does not submit web forms.

You would need to write an external application to parse the HTML,
generate the target link and then feed that link to wget.


You could use wget2, which we're designing as a library, although it's
still in pre-alpha. It has functions to extract links from an HTML
document (see the example in [1]), although I don't know if it can
extract URLs from <form action="..."> fields as well, which is what I
guess you need. Maybe @Tim can give more details on this.
