It's best to post extbase and fluid questions in typo3.projects.typo3v4mvc
Your questions are also read (and often answered) by the authors of 
those extensions.

AFAIK you need two templates. To create new records you can use a form 
tag such as:
	<f:form method="post" controller="Contact" action="create" 
name="newContact" object="{newContact}" arguments="{contact : contact}">
and for the edit template a form tag similar to:
	<f:form method="post" controller="Contact" action="update" 
name="contact" object="{contact}" arguments="{contact : contact}" >

The input field tags are similar in both templates, but extbase/fluid 
will add the current value to the edit template fields.
