I can only give you some examples of code which you can get inspiration from.

for an example of plugin that recover the clic on map, see http://www.cartoweb.org/cwiki/HowToGetXYCoordinatesOnClick
this plugin return a simple message (...addMessage...) but you can query a database instead, see the "locate" plugin for example of database query. there are several other plugin also doing database queries.
to display the image, I would say the easiest way would be to make your plugin use ajax, so you can recover the image and open it easily via a javascript popup.
read the doc http://www.cartoweb.org/doc/cw3.5/xhtml/user.ajax.html and you have examples in pretty much all plugins in Cartoweb.
