See also offset in packet byte pane.

Can we add an edit box or something to change the start offset to show a slice of packet with new relative offsets to the left side in the packet bytes panel (3.20. The “Packet Bytes” Pane)? So I can quickly find the relative offset of a field or a byte from the bottom left corner of the status bar.

It looks like the 7.3. Show Packet Bytes triggered by clicking the "Show Packet Bytes (Ctrl+Shift+O)" menu item and selecting "Show As" "Hex dump" in the Packet Details Pane.

I think that is not enough. I want to show the byte offset from the new beginning rather than the starting of the frame. Furthermore, the packet may be unknown to Wireshark, i.e. a new protocol message, and there is no dissector for it. So I just want to make it easy to find the regularity/pattern of offsets of a field (the regular offset of a field)

You can open an enhancement request at the Wireshark Gitlab Issues page.
Since it's a gui change, it might help to make a mock up - simple screen shot with some annotations in MS Paint or similar.
