comment Change the parent process of a process?
I can't speak well for emacs; haven't really used it in 25 years. As far as I remember, it connected to an already running emacs process, so it wasn't able to run in the background like screen. To answer your first question: Yes, there is a UNIX domain socket that is used to access the server SCREEN process. Some systems have it in /tmp/screen/ others may be in /var/run/screen; when you run screen -ls, you'll see the directory ("1 Socket in /path/to/directory").

comment Showing GNU screen session name and window title in shell prompt
If GNU screen has been compiled with the -Q (query) option, then you can run some commands, such as title and windows and have the data display to stdout, however, without a trailing newline.
