Adding Auto-complete to Lookup Fields - search/select dropdowns

We have some lookup fields on our forms that contain many items.  I want to make it easier on the users by allowing them to use some sort of "search select" like Select2  or Chosen.js


I found these examples below of how to incorporate some javascript functions into SharePoint lists, but I`m not sure how to do it / if it would work with Ardevia forms using Office 365.
