That dialog cannot be changed for an individual library. It's the default new page dialog for the whole site collection. You would need to write code to change that. Out of the box, just create the page, then click the Page ribbon and use the "Edit Properties" command to set the required fields.

In this question a code solution is linked, but it applies to publishing pages, not wiki pages and I don't know if it works for wiki pages as well.

You may want to consider a publishing library instead of a wiki library. When you edit the pages in a publishing library, you will see a view of metadata fields as defined in the page layout. You can create page layouts to suit your needs and can make sure that metadata fields show prominently when a page is edited.
