I am trying to add a textfield to a popup menu (like in MS Access when you right click in a column and it gives the option to "Filter For:" and when you click on it, in the same menu it has a text box next to the heading that allows you to type in a string.

Windows menus can't do this.  The MS Office team spent a good deal of time developing new menu controls so Office programs can do that kind of thing, but they didn't bother sharing their new menus with anyone else - they're only useable by Office.  If you want this type of feature, you have to implement the menus yourself.  At minimum, you'll need a form, a standard module, and a bunch of Windows API calls.

Take a moment to consider whether this is worth the trouble.
