I don't understand the question. Server A is an HTTP client, so it
would have a chance to inject cookies. They are after all just an HTTP
header. Whether it is a browser or not is irrelevant.

Not with the little information I have. If I was working on this
solution, the major part of the project would be research. Traffic
dumps between client and server A, traffic dumps between server A and
my system. Code review of server A. How? Why? What? Who? When? Where?
If there is a needle there, you need to find it, otherwise, you will
need to find the smallest impact method for embedding a needle. Either
way, information is key and research is the way of gathering
information. The implementation is always simpler than the discovery,
otherwise the project is boring.

I think we have given about all the available solutions to you, but
your job is to find the details needed to implement them. We can't do
that for you.
