Can I create files and folders, that don't really exist on the disk, using CallbackFilter?

Version 3 of CallbackFilter supports creation of virtual files and directories. There is an additional parameter present in Create/Open file callback. It’s a Boolean parameter named “VirtualFile” that is used to create files and folders which don't reside on the storage. There's a sample present in \Samples folder that shows how to create virtual files in code. VirtualFiles feature works only in Legacy mode of the filter driver but not in Mini-filter mode. Microsoft has made the legacy mode obsolete in Windows 10 Creator Update and will do the same in the updates to Windows Server 2016 and later versions of Windows.
