Get file link from file in SP library


When creating a new item in a SP list, users must paste a link to a SP file in a URL field.

Is there a way to reverse the process? So instead of first have them creating a shared link from the file, create a new item in the SP list and then paste the link in the URL field,  I want users to be able to click on the URL field in the form, then a SP library should open, the user selects the file and the link to that file is displayed in the form field.

Is this in any way possible? I don't want files to be uploaded (user should only choose existing file in library), I only want the link to the SP file.

Help is greatly appreciated.
