Religion?

Registration of births, deaths & Catholic marriages started 1864 (from 1845 for non-Catholic marriages) so for earlier dates you need church records and there are LOTS of churches in Belfast.

When & where did he marry?

Apparently those years are correct,Mary being quite young about 16 when she married.

Where?

Quote
He is of the Protestant Faith.
Which leaves a lots of choices for church where he might have been baptised.

Quote
He is given as born in Belfast in 1812.He is looking for his parents if possible please.
What record(s) show Belfast as birthplace? "Belfast" could easily mean the city itself or a large area surrounding it. (my Grandfather's uncle was born 1819 fifty miles west of Belfast but his 1890 obituary say h was born near Belfast).

Birth registration of son Gordon (1865) gives family at Tulnacross-
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1865/03589/2323089.pdf

If the parents were married in 1838 then I would expect to find that they had quite a few children between those dates.
