I know you said no melting but shopping bags are easy to get and melt easily if you're careful. Just make a clamshell mold or buy.
If you have mad skills with a knife, carve them out of hard plastic or light weight wood.

I would definitely look into a technique similar to the Bacon Caviar recipe, where you drop balls of a liquid into a different and very cold liquid. Not sure about the precision, but it could be worth a shot.

Wilkinson sell a variety of glues, including 2-part epoxy which is a 'resin'. How do you want to form these pellets? L

You could make moulds out of wax, but resin isn't that cheap for something you're going to "throw away". Silicone caulking is bathroom sealant, that rubbery stuff around the bath / shower tray. L

Oh aye, Araldite is good stuff, sets rather hard. That stuff that sets clear in blocks to like preserve things sounds like fun, I'd like to play with it myself... L

Not easily - they are moulded and need to be fairly accuratly made or they will stick - assuming you want to make your own airsoft ammo. I believe they are made from PVC
