I don't know of a way to marry a pdf to a search engine. However it is 
feasible to provide a TOC, bookmarks in the left margin, and of 
course an index with direction to specific pages via anchors.  I must 
confess I know how to do this (or at least where to look) in plain 
pdftex or Context versions of TeX but not in Scribus.

If we go away from PDF then a search engine application for an html 
page or pages is more common. This would require Java, PHP or other 
CGI coding.
