I'm tracking Woody, but would like to search for packages/information on updated packages in Sid. With apt-get, I can do a
apt-get install -t <distribution> <packagename>
and install the package from <distribution>.
Eg. There is a grub v1.0 package in Woody, which I can easily search for with apt-cache search grub. Assume there is grub v2.0 in Sid. When I do a apt-cache search grub, can it return the information from the grub v2.0 package in Sid instead of grub v1.0 package from Woody? i.e. Is there a similar arguement (aka -t) to specific the distribution for apt-cache search / apt-file search ?

What distribution are you in: Sid or Woody? it seems to me you wanna be on both.
Once you decide which one you are gonna choose, the command is:
apt-cache search (name of package) or category.
