I want the following function to be implemented in SharePoint 2010 search results.

  • User can include the operators OR & AND in the search string.

how many of them needs customization? and if customization is required for it then what I have to follow ?

They are all supported. Check out the KQL reference https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ee558911(v=office.14).aspx

Wildcards have to be appended manually per term, and only wildcards at the end of a term is supported.
