As you probably know, iTextSharp is build on iText, so pretty much anything you can do in iText can be done in iTextSharp. Take a look at this iText sample, it shows how to extract text:

There is no find command in iText, so you have to parse the contents of the file yourself and compare against your search string.

Do you have iText in Action (the book)? If not, that's a good investment to get the most out of iText or iTextSharp.
