Paypal Toolkit for Dreamweaver

Here's my problem. I have an older version of Dreamweaver MX, which I would consider upgrading if you can help me. I need to do the following:

1. Create PayPal Donate buttons where there are pull down menus for selecting what a person is donating to.
2. Allow the customer donate any amount of money that he wants to.
3. Allow the customer to add up to 200 characters of text to describe what the donation is for.

I would like to use your free product, or purchase something, if necessary, to allow me to easily solve my problem Paypal donation button problem. Which of your products, if any, would work for me, assuming I upgrade my Dreamweaver?

you can do part of this with the PayPal eCommerce Toolkit.

the donate buttons in the eCommerce toolkit are forms with hidden form elements.

You can change the type of the amount hidden form element from hidden to text.

As for the customer adding text, you can create optional form elements:
<input type="hidden" name="on0" value="description">
<input type="text" name="os0">

however paypal limits the optional fields to 64 characters.

for the pull down menu, you would use another optional form element:
<input type="hidden" name="on1" value="cause">
<select name="os1">
<option value="cause 1">Cause 1</option>
<option value="cause 2">Cause 2</option>
<option value="cause 3">Cause 3</option>
<option value="cause 4">Cause 4</option>
