Basically, there's only one user-frontend function:
gnus-group-make-nnir-group bound to `G G' in *Group*.

It comes with Gnus.  You don't even need to configure anything for
searching IMAP and Gmane groups.

I assume you're searching an IMAP group.  In that case, you can use the
IMAP SEARCH language directly.

  C-u G G ON "17-Aug-2011" RET imap RET

The underlined thingy is the actual search query.  ON <date> gives you
all messages registered at the imap server at that date.  For more IMAP
search capabilities, have a look at the spec:
