Like many things in SharePoint you can do a lot but "It depends" on what you are trying to accomplish.
Can you share what you are trying to accomplish?
Do you wish to create a search result based on user accounts that are located in an external Active Directory service?
Do you wish to index an external website?
Do you wish to connect to another SharePoint Farm and present search results based on content and people profiles?
If this helps you then please mark the post as helpful.
If this answers your question then mark it as the answer.
If another contributor in the thread answers your question then please do the right thing.
And as always most answers for SharePoint are based on "It depends"
