Is there any way to embed any type of windows into Javahelp content? Could I embed a Java Applet into Javahelp? Or perhaps (*gasp*) and ActiveX control? ;-)

Here's the specifics on what I am trying to accomplish: I want to change a certain image image inside my help depending on the state of my application. I would also like to provide a link of some sort that could launch another application when it is clicked.

Any help would be appreciated!

Yes, look into light-weight components to do what you want. They are discussed in the JavaHelp User's Guide.
