Is there a way to get the Comment value based on the field name. For example:
Table Name: Customer
Field Name: NameFirst
Comment: First Name
I want to be able to read the value found in the Comment of the Field Name.

You can use the FieldComment( ) function listed under Design Functions. The function uses the format of:

FieldComment( fileName ; fieldName )

Often when a function includes a "fileName" parameter, it's easiest to just fill that with Get( FileName ) assuming that you are running the function in the same file. So your calculation would look like this:

FieldComment( Get( FileName ) ; Customer::NameFirst )

For details see the Filemaker Help page:
