>>How can I overwrite the existing database from a dump file.

In Oracle a database refers to the files on disk.
An Instance is the memory and server processes.
A Schema is pretty much a user that owns objects.

Based on the question asked:
I assume you exported a schema from one database and want to overwrite that schema in a different database.

If so:
You shouldn't need fromuser and touser if you want to import it into the same schema in a different database.

Binary copy the file from serverA to serverB.  This isn't necessary because the classic exp/imp utilities can run from the client side but it makes things simpler if the file is on the database server.

In the other database, drop and recreate the user then:
imp scrapware/recycle full=Y
file=H:\scrp-dump\expSCRp%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~-4%%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%%
time:~6,2%%time:~-2%.dmp
