Hi, i use planner and it do almost all what you need.
You can take notes for a special project or daily notes
You can link all these notes as you want and yes there is 
an index note with search...etc.
I like also occur to find something in my notes.
You can use narrow and allout in planner-mode but i don't
know if you can narrow just one note (except if you narrow region)
You can also take notes from a file or url or any place with remember.
