This will select such residues across the entire structure, but you can then restrict them back to just residue 20 with "sel sel & :20".

I was going like gangbusters until I got to this part.  If you are already using commands, by far the easiest way to select residues with attributes in a certain range is to use a command.  For example, to select all cysteines with phis between -45 and 45:

:cys/phi>=-45 and phi <=45

all residues with sequence number 20 and psi values between 0 and 90:

:20/psi>=0 and psi<=90
