    Is there a option so that if some one fills out the form, 2 people from the staff will get a mail? Then Approve the request?

    No, it is not possible to do exactly as you want it. However, I think something similar can be accomplished using the "edit link" feature.

    When someone submits the form, you can add an {edit_link} tag to the email message. This would turn into a link that can be clicked by the person who receives the email. Then this person can change things on the form.

    To add an edit link to a form email, open your form on the Form Builder and then:
    1. Click on "Setup and Share" tab,
    2. Click on "Email Alerts",
    3. Select "Notification",
    4. Add {edit_link} to the body of the email
    5. Finish and Save your form. 

    You should probably have a status field on the form so that the person who edits the form can add an "Approved" message there.
