It is an error on the fielder who botched the play. If the ball takes a bad hop, I believe it is the official scorekeeper's call on whether it could have been played as a routine or not. Somebody will have to improve this answer if I am wrong about that.

Does a fielders choice count as an at bat?

Yes. If in the Official Scorer's opinion, the batter would have been out at first base had the fielder chosen to make that play then the play is scored as a fielder's choice. The batter reaches first base safely, but is not credited with a hit and is charged with an at-bat. He's officially 0 for 1 on that play.
