If the fielder attempts to get either an FC or FO and is unsuccessful (and not because of any error), do you still mark the batter/runner as FC/FO or Base Hit?

No, it's not a hit. The batter still reaches by a fielder's choice, as long as you determine that the fielder could have made the play on the batter had he chosen to do so.

Hoop is correct. Score a FC any time a play is attempted on a runner (whether or not there is an out made) and in YOUR opinion the play could have been made on the batter/runner. Sometimes this doesn't seem fair to the batter (when all runners are safe), but that's how it goes.
When a runner is forced out at any base it has to be a FC for the batter. But if the fielder merely looks towards a base (checks the runner, for example) before throwing late to 1B, no error on the play, score it a hit.
