Yes, either of those options is possible. Which one is better for you depends on what exactly your requirements are and how much they overlap with common requirements - if there's a lot of overlap popular libraries will likely have good support for the things you need.
Why do you want to develop your UI in OpenGL though? For "normal" desktop applications GUI toolkits like gtk+ or Qt are often a good and powerful option. For simple cases and "demo" style programs there is also AntTweakBar (anttweakbar.sourceforge.net). Commercial options exist probably too, but I don't know much (well, anything really) about them.
