php code can be run as cgi!

you should

1) add #!/path/to/php/binary to start of every php file;
2) add "AddHandler cgi-script php" to apache config (either system or .htaccess);
3) and check php docs what changes are necessary to start working as cgi-s.

I hope this way you will need less changes.

you can use SSI, server side include.

it usually has extention of .shtml.

you can write a cookie.pl to check the cookie,
and then use include virtual.
<!--#include virtual = /cgi-bin/cookie.pl-->

and all your php code can change to shtml.
