You'll need to disable the current search box on PageLines and use a Google Custom Search plugin like this one:

Anyone out there? How do I place 'google custom search' bar to the original position in PlatformPro? I have the google custom search plugins installed.

You can always add it to a text widget in your sidebar. ;)

You'll need to have the PageLines Sections plugin (available from the Store on your Dashboard) in order to create custom sections.
