The extension "Add to Search Bar" gives you a step in that direction.

comment Can I highlight a word with a right click in Firefox?
Right-clicking a word in Chrome highlights the word and opens the context menu, at least for me (using OS X Mavericks).

Can you expand on your practical interest in the question? "Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do."

comment `su` for the OS X GUI
Maybe you wanted to log in as Administrator, then switch to (in my example) minopret without needing to type minopret's password. It seems like that should be possible. I haven't looked yet for how it's done. We know that Administrator has the ability to sudo -s to root, so Administrator must be able to do absolutely anything by one method or another.

comment `su` for the OS X GUI
Switching desktops is precisely the same thing for GUIs as su is for shells. Were you asking for something other than that? It's actually safer in terms of password. There's little chance of a keylogger listening in on the GUI password entry process, which is managed by Mac OS X. It is easily possible for a keylogger to grab the password that you type in a Terminal window.
