In brief: Yes

Its not very common, but fungus can cause lung infections, its more common in people whose immune system is down "due to aids for example".

In brief: Yes

The common skin fungus does not infect the lungs, but there are types of fungus such as nocardia, histoplasmosis, coccidiomycosis, which can be found in immunosuppressed HIV or cancer patients.
