comment Where should i put my php script for ajax implementation in wordpress?
WP handles all ajax requests through admin-ajax.php. The fact that it considers the script to be running in the 'admin' bears no relation to the origin of the request, or even if the user is logged in.

comment Heartbeat API long polling
Long polling isn't used due to unreliability of servers (see discussion in #23216). To clarify, is this a question on how to use the Heartbeat API or implement long-polling?

comment Translate third party plugin and save translation files in custom theme
It changes where WordPress looks for the translation. I'm not sure how Codestyling Localisation works, but if you can download a copy of the .mo file, then you can put it in the appropriate directory.
