Is there a way to get Cura to skip infil altogether in areas that are too small?

I'll often find tiny structures with little to no need for infill at all and I'd rather have them be hallow.

 

Is there a way I can set a type of Minimum Infill Area, but have it not filled in 100%? Have it be 0% instead?

    It depends on the model.  Sometimes support blockers work when you configure them for "Overlaps" and set the infill density to 0 for a particular area.  Other times setting the "Minimum Infill Area" to 2mm² (or some other low number) works.  If you have something like a tube and you don't want infill between the wall structures you can set "Fill Gaps Between Walls" to Nowhere.
