Nicholas - uigetfile will get the filename (and path). You would need to use (for example) csvread to read the data into a variable.

You can load a file from a GUI with multiple options. As Geoff mentioned above, use uigetfile to select your file and then use textscan, csvread,xlsread, etc to read it based on the type of file it is.
For loading .mat file, you can use uiopen directly to load all variables inside it: http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/uiopen.html
