I've heard that someone's thought up a way of using category theory, involving something called topoi, as a foundation for mathematics. If this is true then are there any texts which explain such a categorical approach to foundations? Preferably one which is self-contained, as while I'm sure I could, with time, teach myself the category theory required...I'd rather have it bundled up in a package for me.

The best book for your purposes would be McLarty, Elementary Categories, Elementary Toposes.
