    Cloaking means there are two url for single page . One url for for the user and one url for google . It is implement by the use of htaccess file . you put the some code into this file and it works on your website page .

    clooaking is a black hat technique of seo, and google will definitely detect it and ban your website, I'd suggest not to do that.

    You can get tons of tutorials on it. Go,find it and specify rules to redirect a URL to a PHP file.
