What is a loose ball foul?

A loose ball foul in the NBA (European rules may differ) is committed when NO player from either team has possession of the ball. It is NOT a foul committed on a player who does not have possession of the ball so long as some other player has possession. A loose ball foul is committed ONLY when NO player from either team has possession, which is evident from the name, "Loose ball." The concept is important because an offensive foul has different repercussions than a defensive foul, but a "loose ball foul" is neither a defensive or an offensive foul. If any other player other than the one fouled has the ball then the foul is either defensive or offensive.

Is it a shot attempt if you are called for a charging foul?

Sometimes. Refs call charging foul when a player on the other team sees you coming his way with the ball. That player has to plant his feet into the ground, and not move to make the other player foul. If the player (player with the ball) bumps the other player (the player without the ball) knocking him over, a charge will be called. But that player cannot move his feet, he has to take the contact. However if you step in front of the player with the ball and he knocks you over, it's a blocking foul which will be called on the player who stood in the way, the player without the ball.
