How can one add a column filter to a widget or dashboard that is relative to an input parameter or variable?

By input parameter you mean an arbitrary of any text input?

Every filter on the dashboard is already an input that can be modified by the user as long as its not locked I think.

I may need an example to understand better the situation

It would indeed be helpful to have larger context of the goal you want to achieve. 
Generally speaking, Blox plugin has a list of utilities for enhancing the dashboards, one of such utilities is Input.Date that can collect the Date value from user and apply it to widgets/dashboard as a filter. More info on this can be found here:

Thanks @OlehChudiiovych

I have received additional recommendations outside of this community as well.

I intend to review them once I'm back from vacation (~1.5 weeks).  I'll post an update.  If some of my use cases are not solved, then I'll elaborate on them.

Thanks!

I have identified cube design measures that will address our two most immediate use cases.

However, it'd be preferred to solve some of these problems in a dashboard.

Once I have a window of time for Blox exploration I'll note if and how it can be used for my use cases.
