The documentation offers the opportunity to use sphinx search. However, it appears that there is search functionality even without sphinx installed.

How does adding sphinx improve / extend the default search functionality?

By default internal database search capability is used. In MySQL - MyISAM engine supports full text search, postgres supports it natively.

The only external search we support now is Sphinx - very necessary for Chinese installations as Chinese search has special requirements and there is a Chinese language port of Sphinx.

How can I change my search engine from innoDB to MyISAM?

@Andy - please look into this issue in the MySQL resources, such as documentation, forums, etc.
