"It's a pass time activity"
I know you can use 'pastime', but I mean to say it's an activity used just to pass time without any enjoyment or goal.
Is it grammatically correct?
Can you use the verb+noun as an adjective like this?
Pastime is a noun meaning something to pass time. Do not confuse the noun form and verb form.
Yes of course, but is the quoted sentence grammatically correct?
Sorry, I guess I gave an incomplete answer. No, the sentence uses a verb form (to pass time) as an adjective.
"Pastime" is a noun.
