Lets say someone searches for "item a" , and 20 items show up, is there a way to control which item shows up first and which item shows up second and so on?

Not with the default search mechanism in Magento CE. In "fulltext" and "combined" mode the search results are ordered by relevance with:

MATCH (data_index) AGAINST (:query IN BOOLEAN MODE)

In "like" mode, the search results are not ordered at all.
