how do you actually read the screen buffer in other to give your character a reference point of origin and when to know that it has collided with another object on the screen conceptually?

Well, there is a lot of solutions for it ... here is mine :

To check 2 sprites intersection (A & B for example) :

1 - Check rectangles interesection (bounding rectangle)
If they interesect, go on step 2, else : no intersection

2 - Do a pixel/pixel check ... but not for the whole sprite size !!
Without a picture it''s a bit hard to explain ... imagine the area of the intersection (at a least a small square), so all you have to do is to compute the coordinates of this area and check the pixels inside ...
