I'm trying to find a good, easy to use GUI for an inventory in my game, all I really want them to be able to do is select items, maybe move them around into different slots, and be able to modify variables based on where things are moved.

I plan on launching this from another part of the program, so it won't be the entire program, just used for a small section of it. Preferably one with a good tutorial/reference list on how to use it would be nice.

Here's an equivalent request:
How can I be as good as Tiger Woods at playing golf but not have to work at it too hard?

Why are they equivalent. Because neither task is easy or straigthforward. You might find a thirdparty inventory program you can use in your game, but chances are you are going to have to write it yourself.

Gee, thanks, you were so helpful!

I know I am going to have to work to do it, I was just saying what a perfect situation would be, I don't expect you to come up with exactly what I specified, I simply said what I plan on using it for, so the best library to match that can be found, I don't expect one that can do all that to begin with, but I was just saying what I plan on doing it so it is easier to find something to match my plans.

I guess I worded my question badly, but there was no need to be rude about your answer.

I don't want to premade inventory, I'm just searching for a library or something I can use to create what I need.

It wasn't rude.... there is a Game Dev forum here too.
Does your game engine have a GUI you can use, letting you progress to the rest of the code?

I'm not developing a very serious game here, the rest of the game is visualized using pure ASCII, but I thought that maybe I would change things up for the inventory, is it more annoying to do so?
