Advanced text searching (preferably for Mac)?

Are there any products (preferably that work on OS X, but I'm flexible) that provide really intelligent text searching capabilities? For example, if there's a document that has the word "disociated", I'm looking for software which, if I search for "dissociation", will be able to recognize "disociated" as a misspelled variant of "dissociation", or better yet, of synonyms of "dissociation". Neither Spotlight nor products like Zotero or Devonthink do this. Anything like that out there?

How to make simple metasearch engine?

I want to create a simple page that will query search engines of my choice (i.e. in the form www.z.com/?q=blah) and just concatenate the first page of results into one page. Is there any super-easy way to do this? It would be great if it looked pretty and/or was mobile-phone-friendly, too, but this is not necessary. Thanks.

Fastest way to create search engine for discussion web site?

What's the simplest, easiest, fastest way to create a search engine for a discussion website (in particular, this one) which is NOT RUN by that website, but on another computer, and which recognizes as searchable/sortable fields: 1) the "board" the post is in, 2) the titles as well as the bodies of posts, and 3) the dates the posts were made? Oh, and it should update with new posts every few hours, say.
