Calling everybody a Starfleet Officer is silly mostly because it doesn't even make sense with relation to the meaning of the term.
There are actually quite a few different meanings of the term, including the description of commissioned and noncommissioned personnel.
Not really, you are only a non commissioned officer when you reach E-4 in the enlisted ranks. Whatever basic training Starfleet has would most likely produce what starfleet would call crewman. (E1 through E3) Navy calls them Seamen.
Which doesn't change at all what I said above. The term "officer" is not exclusive to commissioned personnel nor even to military personnel.
