I know that the heavier bullets require a long action but if one were to build a 6.5x55 varmint rifle, shooting 95 gr. vmaxs of 100 gr. ballistic tips, wouldn't a short action suffice?

It will suffice if you are OK with loading one round at a time.
I too have this dilemma, got a Swede AI and my only spare receiver is a 700 s.a.....but mine is throated long.
Still, using short bullets, you would have to seat the pressure ring beyond the neck-shoulder junction ...which is an accuracy/ performance killer...even if you cut off the plastic tips in the bullets you mentioned.
As you can see 6.5 projectiles are un-godly lonngggg, and the Swede case ain't no stubby either, these two parameters are working against us.

You can use any bullet. The problem may be the mag length if you are going for a repeater and to eject a loaded round you'll probably have to pull the bolt farther out.
