Basic MSi:
Go to Dialog View and click on the dialog you wish to edit.
Every dialog has two options:
a) Behaviour
b)Language(English (United States))

Click on b) and the dialog is available for edit. Choose the control you wish to edit and done...

Installscript Project:
Go to Dialog View and right-click on dialog to bring up a context menu. Choose Edit dialog option and move ahead. For custom dialogs this step is not needed as its already editable.

Can we dynamically change the text based on if the dialog is used for Install or Uninstall

I know two ways:
a)Manipulate the msi database using Win APIs(too complex to implement)
b)Create a dialog similar to the one used in install sequence. Feed all values you wish to see at uninstall. Sequence it conditionally in the Behaviour section to invoke it only during uninstall(simple and recommended).
So in this case you end up with two dialogs, one for install and one for uninstall.
