In brief: Generally yes
Usually, it is acquired; however, up to 5% of patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) may have a genetic or heritable cause.

In brief: Yes
Secondary pulmonary hypertension refers to pulmonary hypertension secondary to an underlying etiology, such as lung disease or heart disease.
So these are acquired causes of pulmonary hypertension.
