Is it possible to add to the predefined overview section in JIRA

I have a producer that wants to have a Milestone version picker, like the pre-defined version picker in JIRA 6, that lets you in put all the versions in JIRA ahead of time on the overview admin page and then have them selectable in the Bug form. The producer wants to have this same function with "milestones", but hasn't been able to achieve this with custom fields alone.

Is there a way to copy the Verson Picker fuction and apply it to the Milestone design? Also, could this be done per project rather than across the board?

Thanks for any help in advance.
