If you want  to create a SOAP parameter like:

<a n="something">DATA</a>

You can try like this:

array('a' => array('_' => 'DATA', 'n'=>'something'));

This will generated xml like this:
<a n="something">DATA</a>

You probably want to try SoapVar instead of SoapParam if you want to specify attributes/namespace.

Make sure to always cast your parameters prior to creating a SoapParam.  Otherwise you will wind up with an incorrect xsi:type and possibly no value.

$value = 0;
$param0 = new SoapParam(
                $value, $param0_name);

will give you:

<$param0_name xsi:type="xsd:null"></$param0_name>

while:

$value = 0;
$param0 = new SoapParam(
                (int)$value, $param0_name);

<$param0_name xsi:type="xsd:int">0</$param0_name>

which is probably what you want.

You have to use SoapVar instead of SoapParam if you want it to do something fancy like using different opening and closing tags.  I ran into this using the SOAP API for Zimbra.

You can also pass parameters (at least simple ones) to SOAP functions like this:

<?php
  $return
= $client->someFunction(array('paramName' => 'paramValue'));
?>

Is there anyway to create a SOAP parameter like:

<a n="something">DATA</a>

If I try to form a param using the following code the resulting request is:

Code: SoapParam("DATA", "a n=\"something\"");
Result: <a n="something">DATA</a n="something">

This is giving me an error from the SOAP server because its expecting a properly formed closing tag without the encapsulated attribute.
