I moved from Omnifocus to Org-mode. I liked the ability of Omnifocus to mark an item as DONE from the "due list", which corresponds to Agenda view in org-mode, by hitting SPACE. I tried S-RIGHT, which works to cycle the state of an item in the normal view, but in agenda view it changes a date. I could not find it in The Org Manual. I have to press RET, which brings the buffer, then change the state there. Does org-mode have a shortcut for this?

Use key t. I just found it in the documentation under Remote editing:

t     (org-agenda-todo)

    Change the TODO state of the item, both in the agenda and in the original org file.
