Your question is not very clear. Do you want to search the text using a script, or using the built-in Search command? Either way, you can't limit it to a paragraph, as there's no such concept in a PDF file.

If you use a script you might be able to detect where one paragraph ends and another begins, but it's quite complicated to implement and you're probably going to get some false results.

I don't think this will be possible.
