I simply need to populate a Drop Down List per an incoming Switch Value.

what is the syntax for adding a DROP DOWN OPTION to an existing list by ID?
to replace all in the list by the ID?

See skeleton below...
EXAMPLE HTML:

<select name="form_transaction_new.booking.medium_timing_id" id="form_transaction_new.booking.medium_timing_id">
 <option value="nan">Select Medium Timing</option>

</select>

Check this : http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_select_add.asp

You may use :

      function insertOption(id, value, text) {
            var option = document.createElement('option');
            option.text = text;
            option.value = value;
            var select = document.getElementById(id);
            try { select.add(option,null); } catch(ex) { select.add(option); }
      }

	}
</script>

<body onload="insertOption('form_transaction_new.booking.medium_timing_id', 'myValue', 'myText');">
<select name="form_transaction_new.booking.medium_timing_id" id="form_transaction_new.booking.medium_timing_id">
