Is there any way that I could implement the functionality of being able to drag files and folders from spotlight to a finder window?

What do you mean by "implement the functionality"? Are you trying to write a program to do this or are you trying to find a setting to enable this? – nhinkle Feb 12 '12 at 3:28

In Lion, Spotlight menu finally supports dragging items out of it, so you could just update OS X.
