Yes, if the ball is pitched in a location where the catcher has a reasonable chance of stopping the ball, that is a passed ball and the error is charged to the catcher.

If the ball is pitched in a location where the catcher does NOT have a reasonable chance of stopping the ball, that is a wild pitch and the error is charged to the pitcher.

Actually, a passed ball is NOT charged as an error against the catcher. It's simply charged as a passed ball. Not terribly logical, I agree, but that's the rule.

If the pitcher throws a ball into the dirt and it gets past the catcher what is it?

It is really up to the official score keeper. If it is a ball the the catch should have been able to catch or block, then it coule be ruled a 'passed ball'. If it is a pitch that lacks control and the catcher has no reasonable chance to get to the ball in the dirt then it is a 'wild pitch'
