Here is an article that shows how to present SharePoint 2010 on a SharePoint 2013 farm: http://nikpatel.net/2012/10/13/understanding-sharepoint-2010-experience-in-sharepoint-2013/

If I do the process of having a SharePoint 2010 on a SharePoint 2013 farm, will I get the search benefits SharePoint 2013 has? Or any of the SharePoint 2013 features?

You should get the search benefits right away, you won't get some of the UI components until the visual upgrade is done. I remember being in a BA Insight presentation a couple months ago where they talked about upgrading to get the backend services like search but stay on the 2010 UI until ready.
