It depends on whats a base for you, I'd say "Base building" in the "standard" ARMA2 DayZ Mod is not possible. You can place tents and Wire Fencing's and these kind of little things.
Building real "bases" is possible in the ARMA2 DayZ Epoch Mod (which is also available for ARMA3 btw), which you can find here:

Fluctuations of 50-100 milliseconds of latency are perfectly normal for online gaming.
