Maybe this is your problem too.
When using the crawler you first click on 'Crawl URLs' to write the urls 
to crawl to the crawler queue. after that you start the crawler though 
the button 'Run now' on the CLI status page.

Your second problem sound like you have a caching problem here. 
Everything that is cachable can be indexed as well and so can be found 
through the indexed_search. I dont know how you include your scripts, 
but probablly you will have to rewrite your php codes to cachable 
extensions in order to make them appeare in the search.

good luck

It's really important that these are indexed, however Typo3 is not currently finding them (even if we visit a specific page which such content - to ensure it's indexed - and then search for it).
