So if I'm playing a A , C#, and E in the key of B major would that be my

bVII chord? It's been awhile since I've thought about this stuff and the flatted root

is throwing me off a bit. The chord I have made isn't in any inversion

Ah, the good old bVII chord. Follow it up with a IV chord, and you have a classic mixo progression going on. I - bVII - IV, in the key of B that's B - A - E.
Mixo is my favorite.

You got it, it functions as the bVII - very common non-diatonic chord, borrowed from the parallel B minor key.
