No, there isn't a tutorial that will tell you how the AJAXy action links for
comments work. But you have something much more valuable at your disposal:
the entire source code.

I'm not suggesting that a tutorial wouldn't help, just that at that level of
detail, looking at the code is a much faster way to learn how stuff works.
(Btw, using the Firebug console to follow AJAX requests is priceless.)
