You can include a javascript function to fire when the user submits their name and email (Player Triggers > Execute Javascript). 

The function could take the name and email values, store them in local or session storage

example:  sessionStorage.setItem('actorName', actorNameFromForm)

then you can retrieve them before the xAPI statement is created 

example: actorNameForStatement = sessionStorage.getItem('actorName') 

and include the new variable in the statement 

example: 

"actor": {
    "name": "User: " + actorNameForStatement,
},

I have a way to get the name (and I assume I will be able to pull the email address also) from he player (LMS) and store them as variables. In the code I am using the name is stored as myName. How do I get the xAPI statement to send that variable as the actor?

The same would then apply to the email address.
