This cannot be done out of the box. The only alternative will be to
create your own upload page in ASP.NET and handle it this way

If you give me more detail, I will be happy to guide you in the right

I am going to try my best to explain since
I am not really good at it. I created custom  document library  (list)
with some custom columns. I want to create another drop down column
like an asp one with all current employee names (textfield) and their
login ids (datafield). Later by click on the employee name based on
their login id I want to open an employee detail page. All employee
data are stored in the database. I am not fluent in calm so I was
wondering if I can insert some code to open and pool data  from the
database instead of hard coding chooses.

The closest way to achieve this is to create a list called Employees in
the same site and use a Lookup field  in the document  Library. If your
employee list is being maintained then you can use a way to copy the
data and paste into the document library

For a custom  solution, you will need to write a ASP.NET page to handle
the upload process.
