XF 1.2 can i search based on username

i have integrated my xenforo with another script and they have what is called a predefine menu

it is only configure to recognize user names

like this for example
by setting it from script AP to be something like this

but it doesn't work when searching for member topics or post because they are set to search using the member id

is there anyway that i can change the link so that it works with something like this

can user_id to be changed to something else in the link so that it work
