Not stupid - but perhaps poorly phrased.

Can I look at each number/letter individually and write the corresponding decimal value?
Huh? Not sure I understand this. If I follow your logic, why isn't the 3 also unique???
Since F is the only value which won't be identical,...
Well, F is 15, if it's in the lowest nibble.
...can I just insert 15 (it's corresponding decimal value) and have the number in decimal form?
Then all you need are bit patterns to replace the values. A little tight loop that spits out a 1 or a 0 based on the result of a BITWISE AND should work nicely. Test, output the 1 or 0, shift, repeat.
I want to convert it into binary....
