I think what you are looking for is the functionality in
http://data.mapguide.com/mapguide/devguide/index.php -- Map Layers
Full source is at

relevant code
      $resourceService = $siteConnection->

      $map = new MgMap();
      $map->Open($resourceService, $mapName);

      $layers = $map->GetLayers();
      for ($i = 0; $i < $count; $i++)
        $layer = $layers->GetItem($i);
        $lname = $layer->GetName();
        $visibility= $layer->GetVisible();
        //insert layer specific code here
