Setting rate to 0 is not permitted. Pausing the pipeline is the right
thing to do - and does exactly what you want.

When paused, the sinks (e.g. audio and video sinks) do not play any
audio/video, but the rest of the pipeline continues to run - queues
fill up, etc. For your use-case, this should work fine - your filesrc
and your new element will behave identically in paused and playing.
