First, I am assuming that by "server A that does support php" you mean
that server A DOESN'T support PHP.

Surely you can GET the output of your PHP script on server B with perl. 
You can then just echo that output out to the client.

IOW, the only output from this perl script would be the HTML it downloads
as a result of hitting you PHP script URL on server B.  No frame or other

If you're really 'leet you can probably just have one copy of a two line
script on A.  Links to that script with different names would then
automagically hit the right PHP URL based on $0.

I hope this makes sense . . .
