I far as I see detect() only returns a point whereas detectMultiScale() returns a detection bounding box. Is there any way to replicate this for detect() function as well?

Detect is related to the size provided when creating the object. So you get the size of the box already: (64,128) for the default value. The returned point is the Left-top corner point of the detected objects, but I agree that the API could be more consistent: using bounding boxes instead of points. This is always confusing: is it the center? is it the top-left corner? … Feel free to update it and add a pull request.
