using SharePoint 2013 and editing advanced searching web part

Scenario: I know you can disable some of the things that appear as advanced searching options in the properties window but I want to add other options that are specific to my needs. Example if I want to remove the language section and put there team member names then as the checkboxes would be the names. Is this possible?

I have tried to modify the xmlns file but not sure if I'm headed in the right direction.

Can someone help me?

You don't need a web part for this. You just need a simple form that can:

  1. Create a simple form that collects the information you desire
  2. Create a query string with the data
  3. Redirect the user to the Search Page with the Query String appended to the URL. For example by adding a button to the page.

For example:

  1. Collect ContentType and Author Name
  2. "ContentType=CompanyContract Author:Ruby"
  3. https://tenant/search/pages/results.aspx?k="ContentType=CompanyContract Author:Ruby"
