I haven't played the game, but from what you described, it could be easily done using a GUI window in WME. Or am I missing something? Remember, the inventory in WME is just a window, and you can add as many controls to it as you want. The tricky part would be the past dialogues. WME doesn't keep track of them, you'd have to script it somehow, such as overriding the default Talk() and GetResponse() methods and store each spoken line and player's response somewhere.

You want the window with inventory scrolling in from the bottom of the screen after right click?

It's easy, really ;)
All you need to do is to increment/decrement the X or Y coordinate of the window in a loop.
For example, to slide the window from the right edge of the screen, you'd do something like this (untested):

for(var i=Game.ScreenWidth; i>0; i=i-10)
{
  SomeWindow.X = i;
  Sleep(100);
}

If you want to use it for the inventory, just fill SomeWindow variable with Game.GetInventoryWindow()

var SomeWindow = Game.GetInventoryWindow();

And of course, handling the right click is just a matter of adding an on "RightClick" handler to game.script.

By the way, the WME 3D Demo project already contains a sliding inventory window, but it's not triggered by right-click but by moving the mouse pointer to the top edge of the screen.
