Yes, it is possible. But now, it depends of what do you want exactly.

  • If you want to integrate a search box for navigating on OpenStreetMap tiles, you only need to deploy the html/javascript page on your server (Ok for a WAMP)
  • If you want to have your own instance of nominatim (for heavy usage or better service and customization), you may read this documentation. It will thus be easier to install this server on a linux system, but you can keep your WAMP for the web frontend.

Ok. You will need a proxy for preventing cross-domain XHR restrictions, look at mine for example (you can find one in php I think). Then you will need some javascript for sending the query and move the map to the resulting location. Again, you can look at mine for example (line 412).
