I need the map to pop open a dialoque for the user to choose some options. Is there a way in VE to open a Disambiguation Dialog or similar dialog whenever I want

The disambiguation boxes your seeing are fancy <div> tags with <div> and anchor tags inside them.  You can either peek using firebug/IE Toolbar at the existing ambiguation boxes and copy their style or use the boxes that are already there and modify their text. 

If you could be more specific as to what you are looking for with the user "choosing some options" it would help.

Thanks,

Well the project I'm working allows the user to select a specific map on startup so I need the interface to load that is basically, a box with a few choices. ie: map A, map B, map C etc... I'd like to use a VE map function to create the div box and close it afterwards.

VE has a message box, which displays for few seconds only.

Derek said it, just use a div. You can make it dynamically if you like and then add it to the map. Remember that for 3D mode you need to add a "shim" to make it visible. The iSDK has good examples.
