How do I add the "switch application" menu item to my
Command Menu. I know I can add the item but need to call some
standard Blackberry function to put up the Dialog?
actionCommand= new Command(tbsmNLS.get("Switch Application"), Command.SCREEN, 1);

You can still code this yourself by asking the system for running application handles, then creating a PopupScreen that holds the application icons in a single scrolling row (like the system ribbon). You would then launch the applicaiton that corresponds to the icon that the user selected.
See the API docs for ApplicationManager.getVisibleApplications() and ApplicationManager.runApplication().
We did this in just a few classes: RibbonIcon, RibbonIconField, and RibbonPopup. RibbonIconField is just a Horizontal Field Manager added to the popup screen, while RibbonIcon is just a BitmapField subclass that is clickable.

The AppWorld process for submitting an application says that they will verify your application has the Switch Application Menu item. Is this only a requirement for 4.7 and Storm Applications? What about applications developed for 4.2.1?

Any update on the above question. i am facing the similar issue regarding the app world requirements.
Any one from Blackberry, please comment on this.
Whether this requirement is mandatory to be met or it can avoided.
we are porting our J2ME app to Blackberry devices, and we are waiting on this.
