Ok so I want to use particular to have particles that do not move, but stay fixed in 3D space to rotate around. You would assume it would be by stopping particle births, but then obviously there are no particles at all!

I would not assume it would have anything to do with particle birth. If you stop people from giving birth, it wouldn't stop time on our planet.

Try under the physics twirly and going to Physics time factor. If you go to the spot you want the particles to freeze and keyframe it from 0 to 1, you should be happy.
