Okay. We know what kind of hookah you got and what coals you're using. Now we need to know what bowl you've got.
If you're using the standard bowl it came with, pack the tobaco in lightly - some say sprinkle it in - until it's just below the top of the bowl (1/8 inch). Then start poking your holes. Just remember that if you're using something small like a thumbtack, you'll need lots of holes. A toothpick, fewer holes. What you're looking for is airflow. Now add your coals. Two Cocos should be enough on a standard bowl. You might want to invest in a windcover for heat management.

Starbuzz is a washed tobacco, meaning it's virtually nicotine free. You shouldn't be getting buzzed. You've either never smoked tobacco before or you're trying to smoke too fast. Take some time between drags on the hose. 30 seconds to a minute between hits is good. Constant 'hoovering' can actually give you a minor case of CO2 poisoning.

what i do with my smaller hookahs i get a small kitchen bowl to fit myhookahs base inside, add a binch of icecubes some water, salt (to reduce water's freezing point and put it in freezer until i pack my bowl, when my bowl is packed i take it tout and add the base of my hookah inside the insanely cold bowl of slushy and wrap it around in some towels to keep it insulated. now your smoke MUST be thick enought! tell me how it goes

Ice in the base and more coals and possibly a better bowl

A better hookah would be my first step.
Most of the pumpkins have a very small down-stem.
This makes a harder draw and less smoke.

Better hookah is a perfect place to start.... Pumpkins are just too small to be good smokers... Plus it doesn't give the smoke much room to cool down before it gets to your mouth (not to mention you can barely fit ice in the bottom if at all)...

I actually have to disagree with that. For either a new hookah smoker or someone on a really tight budget, the pumpkins are actually pretty decent little pipes. Before I got my 28 inch Odyssey, I had a disco pumpkin I bought at a local smoke shop and I really learned a lot from having it (plus the disco lights were pretty cool in the dark). Even though it, obviously, pales in comparison to my Odyssey, it was still a great pipe and learning experience. As far as ice is concerned, I was able to fit like 6 cubes in it, but found it was MUCH better to use crushed ice. Made the smoke much colder, fit a lot more ice, and would last at least half the session depending on how hard my friends and I were hitting it. And once I really learned how to set it up, it smoked like a train.

Of course, not to say that you shouldn't consider buying a better pipe in the future, but the pumpkins aren't bad at all, in my opinion at least. My only real issue with it was the fact that vortex bowls didn't work very well on them, not sure if it was just me or if it's just due to the pumpkin's small size.
