Hi Stefan

im just looking at the stack of unanswered message in the Cartoweb mailing 
list and noticed your question.

to highlight a feature, you only need is to edit the locate.tpl template to 
add some hidden form element values.

in the locate.tpl template you can see:
document.forms['carto_form'].id_recenter_layer.value = input_element.alt;
document.forms['carto_form'].id_recenter_ids.value = item.id;

simply add the following lines:
document.forms['carto_form'].query_layer.value = input_element.alt;
document.forms['carto_form'].query_select.value = item.id;
document.forms['carto_form'].query_hilight.value = 1;

also, you need to add these two extra line to reset the query_layer and 
query_select values after submiting the recentering, otherwise the 
parameters stay set in the main document and may interfer with the normal 
querying tools.
so, after the line:
CartoWeb.trigger('Location.Recenter', 'doSubmit()');
document.forms['carto_form'].query_layer.value = "";
document.forms['carto_form'].query_select.value = "";
