it's goose

The expression is that you wouldn't say "boo" to a goose &, as mentioned, a ghost would say "boo" to you, so the answer to your question (Do you say "boo to a goose" or "boo to a ghost"?) is neither.

Not really. Ghosts don't exist geese do.
Saying boo to goose e.g shouting / yelling at a goose is said to scare them off. Wouldn't say boo to a goose means you're nice/timid/placid natured and you would not be so mean as to scare the geese.
