If I understand you correctly, the following code should achieve what
you want. The code reuses org-refile interface to complete id: links.  

(defun org-id-prompt-id ()
  "Prompt for the id during completion of id: link."
  (let ((org-refile-history nil)
	(org-refile-cache nil)
	(org-refile-target-verify-function nil))
    (let ((prompt-ans (org-refile-get-location "Select org entry")))
	  (or (org-id-get (seq-find #'markerp
              (user-error "Cannot find ID of the entry: %s" prompt-ans))
	(setq org-id-history org-refile-history)
	(setq org-id-cache org-refile-cache)))))

(defun org-id-link-complete (&optional arg)
  "Completion function for id: link."
  (let* ((id (org-id-prompt-id)))
    (format "id:%s" id)))

(defun org-id-link-desk (link desk)
  "Description function for id: link."
  (or desk
      (let ((id (cadr (split-string link ":"))))
	(org-with-point-at (org-id-find id 'marker)
	  (org-get-heading 'strip 'all 'the 'extra)))))

(org-link-set-parameters "id"
			 :complete #'org-id-link-complete
                         :desk #'org-id-link-desk)
