I need have an animation in the top of the screen and a parameters field in the bottom. How can I create such parameters field? Many thanks.

I don't think so. First off OpenGL is only supported on CDMA phones (9550, 8530 [I think], and the new Flip), so that reduces what phones you can do this on. Second, the main reason why it might not be possible, is 5.0 is the first OS to support OpenGL and I think they can only be fullscreen. So having a single field that does this might not work.
As you noticed I said "I think" because I never tried it. If you try it and it works then go for it... and let us know. Simply follow the tutorials that RIM has for OpenGL, replace Screen/MainScreen/etc. with Field, and test on a supported device. If it works then great, else try 6.0 (they have an OpenGL field) and test on a Flip. If it works then, again, great. Else it is not supported at all.

It's not a bad idea, just maybe a little excessive.
