The button is a widget, a Tkinter.Button, and the file browser is
another widget, tkFileDialog.Open, so they are two different things
and they are both done, apparently you don't have to design them.

You would need a combobox, which is not available in the Tkinter
module but there are alternatives. Tix and Tile provide it, so you
could install one of them, or you could upgrade to tk 8.5 (python
2.6b1 includes it in the Windows build). If you are going to use tile
or tk 8.5 you will need a wrapper, which is not available in the
python stdlib but can be found at
