Sure, it's possible--you'd just define some custom markup to do it.
Here's an example for Google (added to local.php):

  $InlineReplacements['/\\[\\[\\$Google\\]\\]/'] =
    "<form method='get' action='http://www.google.com/search'>
      <input type='text' name='q' size='25'>";

Then, anywhere you want a Google search box, you just put [[$Google]]
in the markup.  I've temporarily implemented this at
http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/Development/SandBox if you want to see
it at work.
