Is it possible to connect a PIC microcontroller to Flash? If so, then how?

What do you mean by flash? A USB flashdisk or SD card or just an I2C flash ram? I think Microchip has some application notes on this. Go to http://www.microchip.com/stellent/idcplg?IdcService=SS_GET_PAGE&nodeId=2048 and start digging.

No. I meant Flash the program.How do you connect it to Flash 8 or Flash CS3?

Well, a first step is connecting your PIC to a computer. As long as the PIC can pump data in your box, you can make (or maybe use) a secondary program to capture that data and send it to a flash app.

Its a way of making flash animations for websites. It does include a command interpreter now so there are a few flash based games coming into the market.

But why would anybody ever want to use a PIC through it?

Because it provides a easy way to implement a GUI that the OP might have mastered.

Is there a command in c which I can send data through serial? I've done this before using Arduino.

Nope. C is a language, you need libraries for it to do anything. Look around, I had posted a serial class last year somewhere. Look for those keywords.
