Below you can find sample code for Auto Complete Picklist: 

public with sharing class AutoCompelteController {
    
    public List<String> slctOpts {set; get;} 
    public AutoCompelteController(){

        slctOpts = new List<String>();
        slctOpts.add('HTML');
        slctOpts.add('CSS');
        slctOpts.add('JavaScript');
        
    }
}

Use describe call to populate slctOpts  from picklist of an object. 


<apex:page showHeader="false" docType="HTML-5.0" controller="AutoCompelteController">
    <apex:form >

        <apex:inputText list="{!slctOpts}" />
        
    </apex:form>
</apex:page>

But according to your code the data is already entered . And I want it to be dynamic like when I type the account name suppose I'm typing united then it should show all the accounts which has this name. It should be dynamic..

Technologies picklist (HTML, CSS, Javascript)(solution above) or a simple basic account lookup?  Your question is not clear.
