Is it possible to limit text input in a field based upon its height?

You can't "set" the autotab to a spacebar, but you could simulate it 
with code in the field:

on keyDown pKey
   if pKey is space then type tab
end keyDown

By not passing keyDown, the space never gets entered in the initial 
field, but instead sends a tab instead, which should take you to the 
next field.
