What parameter passing (HTTP_Cookie, etc)
do I need during step #1 so the below #4 works ?

Steps
 1. worker is on order #5, clicks SWITCH_USER
 2. login box displays
 3. manager types their user/pass, clicks LOGIN
 4. same order #5 page displays
 5. manager clicks approve

I don't want to use cookies if I don't have to.

you need to use cookies because http is stateless.. so you need a way of passing the session token from page to page.
