I believe zero-order reactions are fairly common, however they are not as common as first-order reactions.

I believe that orders of 3+ are uncommon and then the other orders are more common!

Here is a link to more information on zero-order reactions. Most of the things this site covers are also in the book and mentioned by Lavelle, but it is a good summary. https://chem.libretexts.org/Core/Physical_and_Theoretical_Chemistry/Kinetics/Reaction_Rates/Zero-Order_Reactions

Yeah I think it is possible to have a psuedo zero order reaction.
