Thanks in advance.

As of now you cannot change the default homepage or search engine in the Ubuntu Touch browser app. For the first version, only the core features like browsing, history, tabs were targeted.
If you are missing features or experience a bug, feel free to let the developers know by reporting a bug report at their launchpad page.
Sorry for resurrecting your question but it appears (I just installed Ubuntu Touch) adding a search engine is not yet implemented. Touch's web browser search engines are stored as OpenSearch XML description files in /usr/share/webbrowser-app/webbrowser/searchengines - if you add your preferred search engine's OpenSearch description file here, it can be selected as the default search engine for the browser.
You'll need "sudo mount -o remount,rw /" for the read-only filesystem.
It's hacky, but works.
