Is there any possible method of creating a dialogue box as a help option similar to the one in Microsoft Word Help dialogue boxes with keyword search

Yes, but not only with PHP. PHP could be the backend on the server for
this. Implement the help and search in php, then program a html
interface to it and then you have your search box. You could
alternatively use javascript on the client (browser) to open the help
window in a new window (without menus etc).
Information on how to program your search and your help can be found by
reading the php manual at http://php.net/. And for html and javascript
go to the corresponding faqts groups, or speciality sites.
i hope that help.
