Im looking for a way to make tags a searchable object. To clarify, Im NOT trying to make the search engine search posts by looking at its tags, but I want tags to show up in the results just like a post. any help would be much apreciated
There isn't a way to do this "out of the box". However, what you could do is setup your search page to search for tags, categories, and other taxonomies before (or after) searching for posts. With a little effort you could intersperse them as well, but pagination would be tough -- your best bet is to have multiple search results areas, "Matching Tags", "Matching Categories", "Matching Posts", etc. See get_terms for everything you need to know to search taxonomies!
