Since I have many fields in the contact form for all my contacts, if I want to search my contacts as to certain words in a field, is there a way to search all fields of the contacts, not just one field?

The general search (keywords only) search common text fields but it won't search all fields. If you need to search a specific field, you'll have to use the field name in the search:
fullname:"mary smith"

(not a good example, because fullname is one of the common fields that is searched, but it is an easy field name to remember :))
