A Mambot is a "small, task-oriented function for Joomla! software.
Joomla! mambot intercepts content and manipulates it in some way
before it's displayed. Joomla! provides a number of Mambots in the
core distribution."

Therefore, there are many ways in Drupal to do these things:

- hook_init() http://api.drupal.org/api/4.7/function/hook_init

- hook_footer() http://api.drupal.org/api/4.7/function/hook_footer

- Conditional PHP in page.tpl.php
