If you are getting black soot them the air/fuel mixture is not correct. Yes, usually it is a sign that you are getting too much gas...
However the problem could easily be that the air shutters are closed partly or dirt has plugged things off enough to mess with the air fuel mixture.
Without knowing exactly what you are talking about it is very difficult to give exact troubleshooting procedures...
I assume you are talking about a gas fireplace of some type...
They are historically very susceptible to dust and dirt which clogs the burner and air ports causing them to smoke..
A very good cleaning yearly is very important for proper operation...
Blow everything out with compressed air as you completely disassemble the unit and put it all back together again...
Generically I would find out the BTU output of the burner and then check the gas pressure or clock the meter to see what you are getting into the burner.
Then after making sure the proper fuel is going in then I would work on the air/fuel mixture and getting a good flame.
To do this may take specialized equipment and even after getting a good flame the combustion should be checked with a combustion analyzer to be sure the you are not producing harmful amounts of CO (Carbon Monoxide).
The best person to do all of this is a professional that has experience with the type of equipment that you have and knows how to setup the equipment to work safely.
After people die it is too late and it does happen...
