This may sound like a question but recently I looked at my left hand at saw when I fret a string it doesn't hit the fretboard yet I still get some sound. Whenever I do try to go harder the notes seem to go sharp. So what do I do? Will me not fretting hard enough intefer with techniques like hammer ons and pull offs?

Not fretting harder is good, you shouldn't be using any more energy to do any one thing than you need to. "Hard enough" is exactly the amount of energy you need to make a note sound without fret buzz.

Pushing down the strings until they reach the fretboard is hard work and, as you've discovered, pushes the notes out of tune.

Your strings aren't supposed to hit the fretboard

You're playing perfectly normally.
