Reply to the first part of your question:

Elizabeth Bennet owns a very dissimilar view to marriage from her friend Charlotte Lucas. Charlotte thinks that waiting for the perfect man in order to marry is not an easy task for a girl of the nineteenth century English society, especially when the property of her father is entailed. She finds it impractical that a girl like her or Elizabeth in the society would wait unless she finds her love and reject proposals from other man with good fortune, since in that context, securing a girl's fortune is much more important than waiting for the perfect love and getting involved in a love-affair if thought practically. On the contrary, Elizabeth prefers love-affair to a arranged marriage. She thinks, through an arranged marriage, Charlotte or any girl would have to sacrifice much, she would lose freedom, and there would remain a very little self-respect left for the girl if she chooses an unsuitable man solely for the sake of financial security. She is a bit impractical in term of her view to love and marriage under the context of her society. Still, she would be appreciated because she stands upright on her individuality. That is why she rejected Mr. Collins.

Reply to the second part:

Elizabeth is seen constantly misinterpreting Darcy, because she is prejudiced against him. This is why the novel is called Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth stands for prejudice. She, especially being influenced and distracted by Ms. Bingley and Wickham, holds a negative notion about Darcy. But, more importantly, it is Darcy's pride which makes her consider him as a snob and arrogant person at the first impression when Darcy says that she is not good enough to tempt him, and comments against her family. And, as it is said that, first impression lasts long, so, Darcy's proud image impels Elizabeth to think his intentions always negative.
