From your question what I can understand is, you want to create a pop up wizard, showing specific fields of already existing record.

This you can't achieve with action type button, you will need to replace your button with object type button.

       <button name="action_view_hr_payslip_button"  class="oe_stat_button"
         icon="fa-money" type="object"/>

 Then inherit the class in which you have added this button. and add new method which will get called on click of this button.

In this method, you will need to search the record which you want to display on wizard.

def action_view_hr_payslip_button(self):
     form_view_id = self.env.ref("your_module_name.action_view_hr_payslip_button").id
     payslip_id = self.env['hr.payslip'].search(your_search_condition, limit=1)
     return {'name': 'Payslip',
             'type': 'ir.actions.act_window',
             'view_type': 'form',
             'view_mode': 'form',
             'view_id': form_view_id,
             'target': 'new',
             'res_id': payslip_id.id

Hope, this satisfies your requirement.
