RE: just to clarify, you are not able to help me add the additional drop down? Would it be easier to add an additional drop down for a non-custom field?
I do offer custom development services, so yes I can help. Would you like a quote?
Registering a custom field is where I would start since it is the best way forward.
I do give little shortcode code snippets and CSS bit in the support forum, but developing custom fields with search does go beyond what can supported in the forum.
RE: I would still like to figure out how to refer to the element both in CSS and in the shortcode, so that I can make it bold and add a string to get the label text to show up
This line of code:
if ( ! empty( $text ) ) echo '' . esc_html( $text ) . '';
You can tweak to have whatever label you want and add classes for CSS targeting so you can style it any way you want.
RE: I am receiving a syntax error that says there is an unexpected “<”

?>. I suspect you have inserted a PHP open tag within a set of PHP tags.
