Is there a way to have a "lookup" in an option field that allows you to type in what you are looking for as opposed to just scrolling to it.  For instance, using the USA for states, starting by typing in a brings up alabama then typing as r brings up arizona...and so on.

no. This question is already asked by someone else ("auto-fill select"). No simple way. The above-described "first-letter select" is the only thing standard.
