templates/footer.php is probably the file you're after.  Maybe replace
the search box that's there with your Google search bar?

This is a perfect example of how a text search "hook" (as part of the
overall plugin architecture that's slated for 1.3) would be useful for
adding new functionality without having to modify core files.
