Another thing you may be hearing is in phrases where an object comes after que: Le gustará más a ella que a mí. In this case, you do need mí because it's to me. No doubt this is probably what you heard, but because in English we've had a tendency to shift than to a prepositional status making me most common whether as subject or object in such ...

Mi is an adjetivo posesivo (like tu, su, nuestro, etc.) Mí, notice the diacritic, is a pronombre personal preposicional. For example: Esta carta es para mí. This letter has been sent to me. However, yo is also a pronombre personal, but it is a pronombre personal no preposicional. For example: Creo que yo puedo hacerlo. I think I can do it. Your ...

I don't really know where you have seen someone use 'mi' as a noun, but, as a native Spanish speaker, I can say that they're wrong using it that way. 'Mi' is the possessive pronoun.

That's wrong. It should say "Él tiene más libros que yo". You can use "mi" as pronombre posesivo, as your first example, but to use it as a pronombre personal it needs the accent. "Mi amigo se alegra por mí". First one is posesivo (my friend / el amigo mio). The second stands for the person who is talking (me / yo). or Cuando digo mi ...

As @toni mentioned the use of le/les or se depends on the type of the Object Pronouns (direct vs. indirect pronombres): DO Pronouns: me, te, lo/la, nos, os, los/las IO Pronounce: me, te, le, nos, os, les When both are used in the same sentence, like here: Ella te los dan.She gives them to you.IO: teDO: los Él me lo dice. He tells it to me.IO: ...

The indirect object pronouns le & les change to se when proceding the direct object pronouns lo, la, los & las. I give it to him- Se lo doy. (can't be Le lo doy) She tells her mom the truth--She tells it to her. Se la dice. Se is also used "impersonally" when it means "one" in general. One can buy milk here= Se puede comprar leche aquí.

Nico explains the first question very well. To anwser your second question, la ve refers to la cara, as part of the supposition we're making about what could it be that is hitting us, and not to the unknown object itself. As cara is feminine, the rest of the sentence has to match it.
