Not really. You can set the sort to Title, which might help.
You could certainly hack the code in and make your own
sorting comparison to sort by other methods.

Again, not really. Again, you could hack the code in to
format as you wanted. But you can't easily put markup into the
excerpt displayed in the results. (There are many reasons it strips
off the markup, not the least of which is to save space.)
