Let us talk in code first:

function modify_search_string($query) {
	$query->set('s', 'baba');

add_action('parse_query', 'modify_search_string');

$query is a reference to the WP_Query object whose parse_query is 
called. For details about what can you do with $query see the WP_Query 
code in classes.php (nope, I didn't find WP_Query docs in the codex).
