Alright, I'm hoping someone can help me out.

I'd like to do a sculpted cake (never done one before) can I fill, layer, and sculpt the cake, and freeze it (undecorated) so that all I have to do is pull it out a day or so ahead of time and decorate it?

I appreciate any help on the subject of sculpted cakes I can get! Feel free to give me any helpful tips and hints, even if it's not about freezing!

Thank you!

First things first, what are you wanting to make?

Yes you can - just make sure you at least crumb coat before freezing. Also make sure you add dowels and separator plates where you need them.

If you'll be using a filling other than your buttercream, do your carving first, then separate the layers, pipe a dam, fill, then replace the layers. Trim, if necessary. It's not a good idea to carve after adding a filling.
