I am using PIC12F1840. INTRC 4 MHz. I want variable frequency and variable duty PWM. Freq range is 9 Hz to 14 Hz and duty 0 to 100%.
Can I use Two timers and a Pot to make Variable PWM ? or do I need Two timers and two pots ?
Pots are used for ADC. ADC value is converter to timer reload values.

Arduino != PIC
Almost any PIC can be used although one with a hardware PWM module makes life easier. If that's all it has to do, I suggest using PIC12F683 which has the necessary timers to decode the IR signal and has a PWM module. It only has 8 pins and has it's own internal clock generator so the hardware around it can be very simple.

You can use XMega parts with big success. PIC controllers divide the clock on 4 to execute instructions (so 20 MHz clock results in 5 MIPS performance) where AVR parts use directly the clock - 20 MHZ results in 20 MIPS. So even smaller AVR controllers like ATMEGA88 which run on 20 MHz can outperform the PIC18F252. AVR timers are more complex than P

The basic sequence can be programmed with a chain of timers (e.g. on-delay timers) and some additional logic.
Timer blocks look slightly different in each PLC vendor's tool, you should review the documentation of yours. I guess there are also programming examples in the manuals, otherwise you'll find plenty of ladder tutorials on the net.

2. configure a timer, TMR1 would be best choice in your application because it has 16 bits so can be used to create longer delays.

You don't say what is your "desired output", so it's difficult to fix it for you.
Beside this, in the case you want to generate 2 PWMs at 180 degrees (like sin and -sin), why don't
you just invert one signal instead of bothering with 2 timers?
Another thing. Why this while loop in the interrupt function? You get interrupts at regular

For low cost precision timers you can use a watch crystal on an HC4060 counter and get down to 1 Hz and use a decade counter and gate for each output state.

timers (when set up properly) count pulses from either an external source conneced to a pin or from the PICs own internal clock. You don't need to increment or decrement them in your code, just check the value in them and it will change by itself.
Typically, the way they are used is to load a value into them then go into a program loop waiting for

As KlausST said, the maximum number is the difference.
I don't know how your program is, but the timer size can change the working principle.
One way to measure frequency is counting pulses (with timers) and reseting the count every a determined time. If you know how many pulses has been in a time period you know the frequency, basic mathematics.
