  • You need to create an controller action and return JSON data (In your case return whole html for select element) from the controller.
  • Use Ajax to call the Controller action and replace the Select options html with the new html from controller using jQuery.

Sample Controller Action Code

public function gethtmlAction(){
  $request = $this->getRequest()->getParam('request');
  // Your Logic
  $responseHtml = ""; // Html content
  $jsonData = json_encode(compact('responseHtml'));
  $this->getResponse()->setHeader('Content-type', 'application/json');

Sample jQuery code in phtml

             url : '<?php echo $this->getUrl('module/controller/getHtml',array('_secure'=>true));?>',
             dataType : 'json',
             type : 'POST',
             data: {request:request1},
             success : function(data){

Hope it finds you helpful.
