Yes. Instead of Ajax.Updater, use Ajax.Request and then do the update

function addToFavorite(quizSeq , userSeq)
  new Ajax.Request('/my/user-quizzes/processRequest',
      parameters: { action:'addtofavorite', quiz_seq:quizSeq ,
      onSuccess: function(response) {
        var markup = response.responseText;
        /* ...do any pre-processing you want to 'markup'... */

It's worth taking an hour or three to read through the Prototype API[1]
[2] front to back. (The unofficial wiki[3] is worth a look, too.) It
only takes about that long, but *wow* does it pay you back in terms of
saving time down the line.

stuff in there that isn't in the new ones)
