Anyone have a script to create a GUI that would allow me to add entries in a combobox ?

Yes, directly from the Help file...

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    ; Create a GUI with various controls.
    Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example", 300, 200)

    ; Create a combobox control.
    Local $iComboBox = GUICtrlCreateCombo("Item 1", 10, 10, 185, 20)
    Local $iClose = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 210, 170, 85, 25)

    ; Add additional items to the combobox.
    GUICtrlSetData($iComboBox, "Item 2|Item 3", "Item 2")

    ; Display the GUI.
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hGUI)

    Local $sComboRead = ""

    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $iClose

            Case $iComboBox
                $sComboRead = GUICtrlRead($iComboBox)
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "The combobox is currently displaying: " & $sComboRead, 0, $hGUI)


    ; Delete the previous GUI and all controls.
EndFunc   ;==>Example

If this is not what you need than be more explicit with your question.  It also helps to post whatever code you have tried.

good Luck,
