I would actually not recommend using javascript because you will run into a lot of browser compatibility issues that need to be ironed out before you can really have a cross browser game.
Flash definitely helps solve this problem and gives you a much better coding environment that javascript can provide.

The company i just work for released a game similar to what you describe, and it took 4+ months with atleast 12 people working on it.
Im sure you could get a prototype up by yourself and not have a problem it really depends on what features you need.

There are a variety of socket server you could use such as electroserver and there are a few other options out there.

If your worried about price could build your own server using apache Mina or Red5 which is open source but that will take more effort.

Hope this helps...

(javascript can be very good for games and i have seen it uses but for heavy tweening and artwork it takes a toll)
