Tempo text

I think I’m getting to old to learn new tricks!
How can I enter free tempo text and metronome marks? I get the drop down list that is available but I want to add things like 'Waltz time

Try using the Shift+T tempo popover: select the note at which you want the tempo to appear, then type Shift+T and in the popover that appears, type e.g. “Waltz time” followed by a suitable metronome mark so that Dorico knows what tempo you actually mean, e.g. “Waltz time q=126” will do. You can choose whether or not the metronome mark appears, and what the actual tempo should be, after the fact by selecting the tempo mark and editing its settings in the Properties panel.
