If I understand you correctly you are after a section of text contained within an area of your website to be scrollable.

If this is the case try this:
<div style="overflow:auto; height:144px; padding-right:5px; width:490px"> your text goes here </div>

set the height: and width: to the size you want in pixels unfortunately can't use percentages with this as far as I know. Also padding-right is to stop the text butting up against the scroll bar (which will be to the right of your text).

I don't if you can change where the scroll bar appears within the div but anyone does please let me know.
