    I wanted to do something similar when I just started with WP 16 months ago. I have music, film and bookreviews, so I found it logical that people could search for title, band/writer/director, label/publisher, etc. Unfortunately WP is 'blogging' software and it has only one title line and not four. So then I figured the trick could be done if I had a search function that could look only through the titles OR titles and posts (so that a post in which I name a director is not displayed when somebody wants my reviews of one director), but apparently, this can't be made (easily). Fortunately, WP came to support tags, so now I use one title, categories for music styles, film styles or book subjects and tags for bands, writers, directors, labels, etc.
    Not completely what I wanted, but it works.
    And now you may wonder, are there search plugins with options to search only title, categories, tags, post content and then all that optionally like in your example; not that I know of, but I would love to find one some day.

    [edit] Excuse me, first hit from Google, could this be something to look into?
