I am probably walking a similar road to you at the moment and, although I haven't done it yet, my next planned step was to use the swfstrings program to fill a MySQL database with words tied to the specific swf files.
I am using a php script to convert my thousands of pdfs to swfs so it is an easy step to catch the output from swfstrings on the converted pages and put it in a database.
After this you can query the mysql database to locate swf files with specific words and therefore know what page to go to.
This works for me because every page is a separate swf file with the page number in it's name. You could produce a database from a split pdf file converted using a splitting utility (like gios splitter), convert those to swf files (via qpdf2swf) and then use swfstrings... If that works for you...
There's probably a way of doing it directly from the pdf though.
That gets you to a particular page. As far as highlighting the specific search words on the page? No idea at this stage.
