Is a defensive timeout charged if the catcher goes out to the mound after an umpire or hitter is hit with a pitch or foul ball?

No, during a time out for an injury to a player or umpire, another player visiting the pitcher is not a charged conference, provided that the visit does not otherwise delay the return to game action. This has typically been a courtesy visit to give the umpire/catcher/batter time to collect themselves.
