What? The word Quantum, means for a particle to interact with an entity

The word quantum is defined well by the wiki snippet you supplied below.

In physics, a quantum (plural quanta) is the minimum amount of any physical entity (physical property) involved in an interaction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum


This theory is trying to describe what might have caused the big bang, such as Light photons interacting with something else, in order to create a bang and make matter


You are using the word "theory" incorrectly here. There is a big bang theory of nucleogenesis that uses some aspects of quantum theory to calculate the relative abundances of the primordial elements Hydrogen, Helium and Lithium and that match observation but there remains the problem of how matter, as opposed to anti-matter, survived the hot dense phase. The "creation of the bang' is prior to this (at times earlier than the Planck time, ~ 10-43 seconds) and is an open field of research with no scientific consensus as of today.
