[Chameleon] Unrectified Photography

I think you can do this.  You need to create a mapserver map file  
with a single layer that is your jpg.  MapServer doesn't need your  
image to be georeferenced but you will need to figure out what to use  
for the the UNITS (try pixels) and the EXTENT (try 0 0 <width> <height>)

Once you have this figured out, you can use the user's selection to  
create the appropriate layer programmatically using mapscript in a  
new chameleon session.

That's how I would approach it, anyway.  But test the mapserver/jpg  
part outside of chameleon, it'll be easier :)
