Am I allowed to play a "Play before a base scores" action as a normal action during my turn, and just not resolve its ability? If I were playing, for example, ghosts/time travelers and just wanted to get rid of a card, is playing a special as my action a valid move (with no expectation for its ability to resolve)?

Not in these cases, no. The reason is because the card specifically says when it can be played.

It’s not that you can play any card during the Play Cards phase, it’s that you can play a card even if its ability can’t or won’t resolve. You still have to be allowed to play the card first.
