I guess, yes.
PmWiki will use Site.Search if there is not any other searchresults
directive in the page.
It looks like it is the case you want now : on your home page, when
searching with top right search engine, result are given for all

In that page, you have the top right skin search engine, plus a second
search engine created using (:searchbox:) and a dedicated
(:searchresults:) limited to current group.
So, whatever search engine you run, PmWiki will show the results
according to the page's (:searchresult:)
I don't know if it is possible to have two searchengines using
different params : one for all the wiki ; another one for the current
In PmWiki, several pages have a special searchengine (plus the top
right search field) : in all these pages, both give results according
to the (:searchresults:) param.
In my little knowledge, I can't tell you any solution to get in the
same page two search engines working differently.
Maybe a conditional if ?? if searchengine1 then pageresults1 ; if
searchengine2, then pageresults2 ? Could this be done ? I don't know.
