MS4W 1.4.1 contains 4.6 and 4.8 phpmapscript dlls, and your chameleon is 
probably configured for 4.4 (which is not included in MS4W 1.4.1).  So 
you should edit the /chameleon/config/chameleon.xml file, and change the 
'mapscript_module' parameter to point to the name of the 4.6 or 4.8 
mapscript dll in your ms4w package:


I have no idea what to say about your "sluggishness", I've never heard 
of that before.
