I would like some recommendations for good software that will scan to PDF/A and software that will convert (preferably batch convert) PDF files to PDF/A. I have scanned documents in PDF and that need to be scanned to PDF that will be used for reference and research and also wonder whether PDF/A is the best format. I understand that PDF/A allows for searching of documents that have been created in that format and I hope that this correct.

You don't need PDF/A to be searchable. What you need is OCR.
PDF/A is an excellent format but it can be demanding. 
Some flavours of PDF/A require tagging, which is going to require you to review the reading order of every word of text, for example.
It's labour intensive enough proofreading the OCR.

Why do you repeat a 2 years old text?
