I think you need a baseline understanding of the html you are trying to

You don't 'check the checkbox'... your browser renders some data from
the server.. you the user see the rendering.. and the browser sends back
data based on the input you created.  With headless testing, there is no
user interacting with the render of the page.  You get data in, you must
send data back.  What the data you send back is going to be based on the
page sent to you by the server.  This is why your solution will be
processing the html data sent by the server, and forming a post back to
the server including the results you want.

You can use the proxy recorder to help see how it works, or use a packet
sniffer.  If you are looking for some magic 'set checkbox = 3' it
doesn't work that way.  You should probably do some basic reading on how
html works for these types of functions so you know what you are looking
for in the html.

Jmeter lets you send raw html.. its up to you to really know what you
should be sending.
