Hi govind,
let's analyse your request step by step :

This logic needs to be defined :
1) in your search API, rewriting the query OR
2) with a specific query parser, that will take different parameters and
rewrite the query properly

Out of the box solr doesn't allow you to map one field to another/ more
than one .

Given a document and a query, the score in Solr is only one.
Anyway if you activate debug you can see the different components of the
This can be potentially the closest thing to what you need .

This is interesting, can you give more details ?
Maybe the query re-rank component and Learning To Rank could be interesting
to you.
