It sounds like in this case you are wanting to use a screwdriver as a hammer - unfortunatly SharePoint has a limit on all lists to about 5,000 - any more than that and you start seeing unusual behavior and degraded performance.
A list that has 10,000+ items would probably be considered a database - have you considered putting this into its own database?
If you put the contents of this list in a SQL database, even on the same SQL server, you could then setup a BDC connection to the database and use SharePoint to query the database, or even use SSRS for reporting.  
If you upgraded to SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, you then have PerformancePoint and other Business Inelegance tools available including dashboard builder to push your capabilities even further.
As such a huge SharePoint list however, as you can probably guess by the lack of responce to your question, your options are extremely limited

Ok, say it has 1000 record items only.

How do I filter for specific IDs?

Hi,
first of all, there is no hard limit in SharePoint 2007 - they just introduced the list view treshold with SharePoint 2010.
Second there is an OOTB (Out-Of-The-Box) solution.
Depending on your SharePoint edition (needs to be server - not sure about difference between Standard and Enterprise), you can do the following:
1. Add the ID field to your view (so that it is displayed)
2. Add the Filter web part - "Text Filter" and configure it
3. Connect the filter web part to the list view web part, passing the text to the ID column
