It's not a stupid question. Kér(ni) means "to ask for" and keres(ni) is "to look for". They are not immediately related with each other, but they likely come from the same root. Etymologic work for Hungarian is a bit difficult since the language family is rather small and spread out, but the entry for keres in the Etimológiai Szótár says the following: "[...] In another aspect, the root in question is identical with that of the verb "kér"; the interdependency of their meanings is shown in some examples in related languages."
