After locating my site in other search engines,that have exceptional Page Rank(Lycos,Yahoo,MSN and others) under my keywords,and with excellent anchor text, all pointing at my site, and seeing how each engine search page displays a unique URL,,,

would it be beneficial to submit those URL's from the other engines, to Google's add URL so that Googlebot may "discover" my link.
And possibly boost my own PR within Google?

Any benefit, or harm?

( I apologize if this is a "basic" question)

The simple answer is NO.

A lot of the search engine results with High PR, is actually Guessed PR and will NOT count as a back link.

Directories such as Dmoz and Yahoo are obviously different to the above.

This has happend sometimes, i remember viewing a list of how many SERP'S the different search engines indexed themselfs.

Even though most of them have exluded robots from spidering the search engine results by their robots.txt, but even if it got listed it wouldn't be that valuable since it wouldn't have any direct links to it anyway.
