I intend to provide online user manual for each screen in the GUI by providing a "help" button. Is this acceptable?

Yes it is very acceptable. Maybe make the "help a menu option rather than a button though.
There are lots of posts in this forum on how to create the HTML JFrame/JScrollpane to display your HTML help page.
