It is possible - for example, this is what Cloudo have created https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/co.cloudo.confluence.connect/cloud/overview

To confirm, we wouldn't want to search all of our confluence instance, we would want constraints similar to the 'live search' macro. i.e only search pages with a certain tag

That was just an example to show what's possible. Without building you own extension, it might be easier to add your own custom search to Chrome.

See http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/create-custom-search-engines-google-chrome/

Your search string will look something like this:

https://YOURCONFLUENCEURL/dosearchsite.action?cql=siteSearch+~+%22%s%22+and+space+%3D+%22SPACEKEY%22&queryString=%s

You need to customise your Confluence URL and the Space Key.

BTW if you want to add more refinements, like a label, then run an advanced search query with the parameters you want and look at the URL it creates in the address bar and use that as your pattern. This guide to CQL will also help you construct your URL pattern https://developer.atlassian.com/confdev/confluence-server-rest-api/advanced-searching-using-cql
