There are 2 folders for html and text format files. It depends on the settings of which file to use.
Template files is velocity template (
For example notify about closed issue - file ../email/text/issueclosed.vm

     [ ${baseurl}/browse/${issue.getKey()}?page=${tabpanel-all} ]
#headerTitleText($i18n.getText("template.text.issue.closed", $remoteUser.displayName, $issue.key), $remoteUser.displayName)

You can write your own searchers, containing their own search templates, yes.  They're done as add-ons.  I've only ever written ones that search my own custom field types though, so I'm not sure if it's possible to write a searcher and add it to an existing field type.  I have a feeling that if you wanted your searcher to be used on a standard custom field (e.g. my-lovely-searcher as an option when setting up a standard multi-select list field), you have to hack the code for the field to tell it a new searcher is available.

Ok thanks, and for the mails ?
