Query/select features based on attributes?

Is it possible to create a Python script that will allow my user(s) to enter (or select from a pull-down) an attribute, for a particular layer and then zoom to the selected feature?

For example, I have a PLSS (township, range and section) dataset. I would like my users to be able to pick township and range attributes, and then zoom to the selected feature(s).

Is this possible? If so, what are the key tools (functions, classes, etc...) I need?

Thanks very much,
