Generate text from the effect controls

Is it possible to generate text from a textfield (or something similar) from the effect controls?
I have an Adjustment Layer with a custom effect on it with a Slider, two Color pickers and four Checkboxes.
Can I somehow add a textfield that the user can input text in, and then link this to a text layer in the composition?
The reason I want this, is because the user can add all the information in one effect, instead of having multiple text layers to edit.
I don't think there is a textbox for this, but is there anpther way? Let's say I add an effect that has a dynamic name, that I can link up to the source text of my textlayers in the composition.
Any help would be much appreciated

Thank you for fast reply!:)
Ok, then I guess it can't be done, not the way I hoped anyway.
This is the effect I have made. I have linked the properties to other layers.
What I wanted was an input field where the user inputs for example "My Title". The source text of my text field in the composition would then update to "My Title".
I know I could probably do this by code, but then the original point kinda disappears. It should be easy for the user to adjust the settings under one effect, instead of having to adjust it multiple places.
I guess the user have to edit the textfield in the comp by actually going into the layer (doubleclick it/highlight it with the text tool etc.) unless you have a genius workaround? (Please say you do:P)
