It's a different cable. Same gauge, just a different end. You LBS
will know what a friction shifter (thumb shifter) is. You just want to
make sure it's friction, not indexed. They're really inexpensive and
you may be lucky enough to get your hands on a used one for a couple of
dollars.

You're looking for something like this. http://tinyurl.com/6qoly2

Keep in mind there is a left and a right, so you'll want to think about
where this is going to be mounted and how you want the lever to rotate.

Hmmm I wonder if you could have both a friction shifter and a brake. I
would find that combination very useful. I dont know if it is possible
cable-wise though.

you can get devices to run two cables in to a single brake for just
this reason
