the box/window will be the same type of information you would get from a
footnote, endnote, or bibliography.  It will simply tell me where I got
the information from.

So you could use the "UML - Class" object in Dia as your box with just a simple string (the class name). Switch off "Attributes visible" and "Operations visible", to get rid of the two additional areas.

Your extra window for more information would be just the properties dialog having a lot of fields you could now fill with additional, invisible information. You can keep it open while navigating your diagram, but updating to the selection requires a double click.

Dia is definitely not what you are looking for.

That's a matter of opinion ...
