index file word-list and fuzzy searching

two related questions

is there a way of searching the list of terms in the index file, e.g. to see
"MyIndex" has the words (apple, pear, watermelon) in it?  (treating the
"index" as if it was a dictionary or thesarus)

some kind of api such as "start at word >= 'banana'", and "read next" would
do it (maybe a "give a count of total # words in the index")

is there any kind of fuzzy searching, e.g. "apple" with one spelling error
accepatable, e.g. "appie" would still match.

any support for "near", e.g. "apple" within 3 words of "banana"
