Unfortunately it is currently not possible to search for settings. Microsoft knows this list is getting out of hand and Joe Belfiore has hinted that the next version of Windows phone will deal with this issue.
In the meantime it is possible to pin some of the settings to the start screen using 3rd party apps or accessing them through the notification center....
