Assuming you didn't mean this as a joke:
dmenu's purpose is to be a menu which lets you select
something which was fed from stdin and output the selection
to stdout. Whether you use the output to spawn a process or
as input to yet another tool is the flexibility you get with keeping
it unixy.

I'm not sure whether one can make a selection and add
some parameter to it by typing in dmenu after selecting the
entry and having the selection with the parameter written
to stdout.
