Well, confusing...  Do you use Mathematica 8.0 Release version? Or 
Prerelease? If I make in a new 8.0 Release Version Notebook a Text Cell 
and the >Insert >Citation then the first item in the pop up is 
 >Bibligraphical Reference
then >Bibliographical Note then (greyed)  >Edit  bibliographical Note
Then a horizonal line and below the line the items Set/Change citation 
style and  >Rebuild Bibliography and Notes.

I have no idea why this should be different in your case if you use
8.0 release version "8.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (November 7, 2010)".
