The functions "OCINewDescriptor" and "OCILoadLob" seem to be better for special datatypes like "CLOB" or "BLOB".

The column number starts at zero.
The number of columns may be obtained by a call to the (undocumented) function:
after ora_exec($cur) has been performed.
ora_numrows($cur); returns the current row number.
To find out how many rows you will have, you need to do a 'select count(*)...' query first and read back the result.
If you are using LONG RAW columns, keep in mind that this function can return up to 64K of data, a limit that's hardcoded into the "DB_SIZE" constant inside "functions/oracle.c".
