I don't completely understand the problem, but doesn't the following do
what you intend:
(gui '(+ChoButton) '(choPage (field 1)))
(gui '(+E/R +Obj +TextField) '(parent : home obj) '(name +Page) 30)
This shows the parent of the current page in the TextField, and allows
to select/search/set it with in the choice-button and -dialog.

In general, I'm afraid that the layout of search dialogs will always
require some manual work, as they are all too different in the logical
arrangements and sizes of the search fields.

That's right. <grid> either takes a number, then it simply specifies the
number of columns. Otherwise, it should be a string of hypens and dots.
A dot will result in a right-alignment of the corresponding column.
