Excel -- need to have a custom/floating dialog box (e.g., "Glossary")

Experts:

I'm currently working on developing a survey in Excel.

For some of the questions, it will be useful to have access to a "glossary" (up to ~ 5 glossary terms/definitions).

So, I'd like to use an image (JPG) that -- when clicked -- will bring up a floating dialog box... which obviously can be closed when not needed.

My question:   How can I use VBA to create this floating "glossary" to which I can add a few terms?

Note:  Please see attached XLSM which uses a message box on "Open"... same principle should be applied except I'd like to open it via clicking on the icon.

Thank you in advance!

Any chance I can use the existing approach (see attached XLSM) and modify the code?  If yes, how?
