I stumbled at your message in the archives because I had the same
question :) I found the keys a bit unintuitive, too. As Xiangfu Liu has
already stated, the keys can be configured
in /usr/share/gmenu2x/input.conf.

Attached is a PC-ified version of the controls:
- Enter starts the application
- Tab switches between sections
- e allows to edit the selected entry
- esc cancels

I found out many keys by trial and error, and just before giving up to
find tab I found this page in the wiki:

Lesson learned: search first, only then use brute force :)
