is it legal to make a "fake" company name like Flamestone Entertainment without legally registering it, or will that be illegal?

Depends on what you do with it I think, if you use it for illegal purposes, then it is, but IANAL.

Why do you want to?
If you're going to enter into a joint project with friends, you should certainly have a collaboration agreement between you.
As for whether you need to set up a legal DBA, that's a separate matter.
For legal matters regarding forming a small business, if you're in the USA, you can go to your local SBA and they'll gladly help you with any and all questions. They even have free brochures. www.sba.gov
