Shouldn't be that hard.  For instance, I created this little snippet
in Tickets/Elements/EditCustomFields

      <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
        function MM_openBrWindow(theURL,winName,features) { //v2.0
        [ <a href="#"
$QueueObj->id %>&CustomField=<%$CustomField->id%>&CustomFieldName=<%$CustomField->Name%>','test','width=500,height=6
00')">Description of Choices</a> ]<br />

This pops open Custom-Descriptions.html which is a mason page I
created with all the code to make it look like a regular RT page with
a nice table of fields and their descriptions.
