How to Use JavaScript Variables in WebReport Tags

I've made an ajax request to ?func=personal.settings in order to get the user's language settings. I then used JavaScript to see if en_CA" SELECTED>English or fr_CA" SELECTED>Français is present. I like to put the results into a WebReport tag but I noticed two things.

1. WebReport tags seem to ignore JavaScript rules so if you put one tag in an IF and the same tag in an ELSE, it will still populate the first (regardless if it meets the if requirements) and override it with the second.
2. I might be missing something but i don't see a way to put a JavaScript var in at WebReport tag var. It only seems to accept strings.

Is there a way to work around the two above issues? Also, please let me know if there is a better place to post this. This is for an active view but it uses the same tag system as WebReports.
