I'm not sure what you mean by opening the main stack's text fields. Do you
want to show the field, or open it for editing, or what?

You can get the short name of the target in the mouseUp handler of the
button, and use that. Here is an example that shows the field with the same
name in the main stack:

  on mouseUp -- goes in palette stack script
    if word 1 of the name of the target is "button" then
      show field (the short name of the target) \
         of card "Help" of stack (the mainStack of this stack)
    end if
  end mouseUp
