No duplication please. Reuse code as much as possible and if not
possible factor out functionality you need to separate module.

Most likely HTML because of theming which should be done in PHP and not
in JavaScript.

> 3. On each action page, add some PHP code, which checks for a
> cookie/database setting and confirms that the client supports
> JavaScript.  In the if block, add jQuery/MooTools code which will
> manipulate the necessary links and forms on the page, carry out the
> actual AJAX calls, and also implement callback functions, which will
> handle the responses from the AJAX endpoints.

There is no need for extra detection - JS enabled => jQuery works => it
can hook onto links.
