Sorry, I know relatively little about how Galaxy loads the tool XML files and turns this into the HTML pages. I've mostly searched the codebase with grep at the command line (also searching directly on GitHub works pretty well) trying to trace functionality when I was debugging something.
Hopefully one of the Galaxy developers will be able to answer.

No I'm really asking about which files in Galaxy, will load those parameters on the screen. I believe you were the one to give me a link to adding a new parameter type in Galaxy via the password parameter, but I haven't quite been able to implement that. The two files I have changed so far are basic.py and form_builder.py but using these two files it still only loads a text parameter.
