You can't print to a c# object 'directly', Ghostscript renders PostScirpt
or PDf into a raw bitmap, the Ghostscript device is the component which
converts the bitmap into 'something else'. This can be a file format, or it
can drive a printer directly using the data.
I believe in your case you will need to create your own device which is
handed the bitmap data from the rendering engine, and you will need to
refactor it as required to fit your own C# object.
A starting point in understanding how to do this might be the 'jpeg' family
of devices. There are 3 of these, and they are all defined in the file
