How is scrolling done in pygame? i was thinking of blitting all gameobjects to a surface, then blitting part of that surface to the screen

Don't do that, just blit your objects directly to the
screen with appropriate offsets. The ones that are partly
or completely off the screen will be clipped away very

On the other hand, if you blit them to another surface
first, you'll pay the price for fully blitting all of
them even if they're not visible.
