code inspector

trying to get my final before halloween so I can move in,

Assuming you are at final inspection (after rough-in), just install the .25 cent porcelin fixtures with the bare bulb, then replace them later with the fans.
Outside a/c is up to the inspector, very often the wiring to the outside disconnect completed is enough, since it is not required.
Permanant power is usually after rough-in, depending on power company.

Yes put a blank over the box, or install a dummy switch.

I have twice moved into newly constructed houses with ceiling fan roughins. In both cases the fan switches were wired, the cable in the fan box was neatly trimmed (NOT wirenutted) and coiled, and a blank round cover was on the fan box. Both houses obviously passed final inspection with the ceiling fans circuits in that condition.

The solution that mikewu99 presented is fine as long as the room has some other way to turn a light or receptacle on from a wall switch near the main entrance. If the fan was intended to be the room's light source, then you need to put some kind of light there to pass a thorough inspection.
