Since I never used the eVIl one I don't know exactly what f pretends
to do, but according to your description, I would say to look for
isearch-forward in Emacs. That is; C-s a to look for the next a and
then repeat with C-s. C-r is the same but backwards.

See the info node Searching and Replacement in Emacs' info file.
C-h i d m emacs RET g search RET

Do you want to do that for all your files, i.e. forever, or for some
files?
