I don't really know how 3D cg lighting works so I was wondering can cg lighting do the same thing as real life lighting like have pretty much every pixel be it's own light source if there's an actual light shining on it?

The keyword is radiosity, and the answer is yes, slowly. People seem to have managed to approximate it real time lately though. It doesn't make sense to talk about pixels acting as light sources though (imagine a light right behind the camera).
