How would one accomplish the following in DrRacket?

"apropos" (CL/shell) or "lookfor" (Matlab)
Given a search string, return a list of symbols with matching name or 
I found that XRepl has the ,apropos command; but I haven't figured out 
an easy way to invoke it in DrRacket.

Finding the source of definitions.
a la ctags or 
Given a function or global parameter, open the file that defined it 
and scroll to the definition.
I found documentation for storing source locations, but nothing on how 
to query the information.
