Default access to what is being viewed on screen

Hi,
I don't know all the correct terminology as i'm just starting out developing a game idea which i plan to hire a coder for but i wanted to see if what i'm planning is even possible.

Can an app interact with what's on screen for example if word doc is on screen, can an app float on top and interact with words and letters. how much access does osx allow a developer

many thanks

Not directly but you could write an app to take a screenshot and manipulate it.
