I want to thank everyone for their time and input.
I chose the answer that I did because it contained all the aspects of the word "behaviour" although I wish there was one good word that I could use. I will use the word "رویہ" since it is easier said and understood, but I will define it initially to include all actions.
چلن seems to bea good word, but it has a hint of moral judgement. For that reason I think that طرزِعمل seems more apt as it sounds very neutral.
It would have been nice to have a word for "behaviour" that could apply to animals just as well to humans, and something that was easily understood.

Explanation: Yes, You are right in your concern. In this context رویہ would be suitable as this word is also commonly used as the translation of the word behaviour in the relevant field. Literally, it's also better than طرز عمل

Human behaviuor is animal behaviour mellowed by social consciousness, and morality/immorality belong to this domain-the domain of social consciousness. Incidentally good or bad (positive or negative) behaviour represent opposite aspects of moral judgement
