1) I'm not sure how Notepad++ supports this but our core search mechanism does support searching for any Unicode characters.   You can search for tabs in pure UI by selecting a tab character and pressing Ctrl+F.  It won't search for a \n using that technique, but you could set the search UI to use regular expressions and "\n" will find line terminators.

2) Searching for a word can highlight all instances.  You can see this in our SDI Code Editor demo where you select a word and press Ctrl+F and you should see all instances highlight in a yellowish color like in VS.
