Screen printing is nowhere near as hard as people make it out to be. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever spoken to a printer who said it was difficult - just lots of people too afraid to try. It sounds difficult, but that's an entirely different kettle of fish.
I didn't fully read that page, but I had a quick look over it and it seemed decent.
i'm not sure about the other method but from what i read in the guide, i come to understand that i can work more "freely" on design using screen printing. I mean, i can actually use a free-hand drawings, or i could be wrong.
You can work that way with screenprinting, though you can also work that way with other methods (you could scan a hand drawn illustration then print it out as-is using heat transfers or DTG if you wanted to, or clean it up in a graphics editing program, etc.).
Screen printing can be very direct/hands on if that's what you want though.
