Is it possible to login to Dropbox and authenticate/allow an app to access files in dropbox without a browser?

Like via ajax or curl? I am thinking if there will be no UI.

No, the Dropbox OAuth app authorization flow requires the user to visit the Dropbox site in a browser to authorize the app. That only needs to be done once per user though, after which the app can store and re-use the resulting access token.

Is this the same for all SDKs?

Yes, this is a part of the API and applies to all of the SDKs.
