...then why doesn't it have an Ability that makes it weak to fire attacks as one of its disadvantages? Don't know what other properties it could have, though...

Because it isn't necessarily a flammable gas?

"Gas" is technically a state of matter, nothing more. Granted, it is frequently used to refer to either "natural gas," which is a naturally occurring mixture of gases, as well as petrol/petroleum fuels. However, both uses are, technically, incorrect, though "natural gas" is at least closer to the proper use, due to its makeup.

I'm more concerned with how a Pokeball doesn't just go through a ball of gas.

Well, most do.

BTW, you need Oxigen to have fire. Those Pokemon cities need much more trees for them to be a safe place to live

Gases with carbon in them extinguish fire. Keep in mind in order for fire to be sustained, it requires fuel, not just oxygen and a spark, and the distribution must be just so. Thus, Gastly would not catch fire unless it consisted of a hydro-carbon compound such as gasoline, alcohol, sugar, etc, which is highly unlikely, and even then, because gastly is dense enough to stay in one piece, there is no air within Gastly's form. Stoichiometry is key to ignition.
