Well, the default sorting in Notes full text searches is based on word occurrences. Documents that have one or more of the search terms available in the text will be ranked higher if they have these terms repeated more times in the text. The more occurrences, the higher the ranking.
So basically, you could tweak ranking by having a hidden field on the form, where you repeat key terms. Hidden fields are included in the free-text indexing.
