Sadly you cannot achieve the desired search using standard features on Jira, you must go for a third-party app instead. Using i.e. JQL Booster Pack you can type the following:
1) Search for Epics on 'PROJECTA' having at least one story on that project:
project = PROJECTA AND issue in epicsOf(' project = PROJECTA AND type = Story ')
(*) Note that this is just an example, you must tune above query to fit your needs.
Using this app you can also query other issues relations, check:
You can achieve this by using a third party plugin like ScriptRunner or JQL Search extensions.
Here is example from JQL Search Extensions for Jira & reports
it will get all epics where stories belongs to project search.
issue in epicOf(
"type = story and project = SEARCH"
