  • I see 2 different questions here. 1.How to convert text into picklist 2. How to select multipe values from a picklist without using control. The answer to first question is to populate a picklist in the controller which you can then display on vf page. I have a question back to you for the 2nd question of yours. Why dont you want to select using control key? That is what we commonly use to select more than one value(in .xls) using any tool.

You can use this (salesforce style) Multi-Select Picklist

Alternatively, build something on your own using JS+CSS...
