I don't see how they couldn't assimilate Changelings, though they might have to prevent them from changing shape during the assimilation process. It'd probably be as simple as assimilate one and send him back to the GL.
Again: how do you assimilate a liquid ? The borg's nanoprobes seem designed for humanoids only or at least mainly.
If the changelings were merely puddles of goo, they would not be able to think, control their actions, etc - just as the coffee in your cup is not capable of such feats.
The fact that they can means there is very sophisticated semi-organic machinery at work. Which can be assimilated - seeing how the borg nanoprobes can assimilate machinery and biology (as we have seen).
