If according to energy-mass equivalence, an object's mass increase as its energy increases too, then the amount of energy a particle possesses determines its interaction with the Higgs Field. How is this right or wrong?

It does not. The equivalence is true for particles or systems in their rest frame only.

It's better for you to discard the idea of increasing mass by increasing energy [relativistic mass].

[itex] E^2 = p^2 + m^2 [/itex] is better...
