Could you clarify the question? You want to search for some process but do not want to use ps?

I do want to search for a process and use the ef options.  But when I do this command:

  ps -ef |grep process

I get ps: invalid option -- e

       ps: unknown option ?

       ps: invalid option -- f

       ps: unknown option ?

Does that make it more clear?

The ps command in 4.1 does not take any parameters I think (more available now in 5.0), but does not: ps | grep your-process work?
