in c#. are primitives such as int (which behind-the-scenes are structs i.e. System.Int32) therefore objects? since primitives are pass by value, it contradicts the fact that objects are pass by reference? please anyone enlighten me. thanks.

Well, actually everything is passed by value (unless you specify otherwise). When you pass an object you are actually passing the reference to the object, and as the reference is a value type it's passed by value, i.e. the value of the reference is copied.
