Simple question

I feel dumb for asking this, but is it possible to pump down a scroll compressor unit for line-set servicing, I have done it before on recips to clean the evap and fix leaks, but I was wondering due to the way the scroll is designed if it is still possible to isolate the refrigerant in the condenser

Simple question

Yes, and no.

A scroll shouldn't be ran in a vacuum. You can bring it down to 10PSIG by text book. I generally bring them to 0PSIG, haven't had one fail afterwards yet.
