I think that the reasoning for limiting the number of searches in a given time is to keep the server from being over loaded by massive traffic. It is a function active on most forums that I am apart of. This allows everyone to be able to use the search feature without encountering major delays. That is how it has been explained to me anyway.
I am unsure as to the "likes". My best guess is that the "likes" feature was designed to help others validate people's advice or judge the trustworthiness of someone's opinion. If users go around "liking" everything the relevance is diluted.

EDIT: One area where flood control works against easy use of the forums, for example, is when I search "LXX," get no results, then quickly think to try "Septuagint" instead, but flood control does not permit me without first waiting...

The likes quota is to prevent it from being cheapened as Getinthebible has suggested.
I used to be an administrator on several Christian based forums, have since gotten out of the business because of the time it takes away from accomplishing other things.
Hope those answers help!
