In brief: Possible
Most UTI are caused by other bactetria( gram negative), but it is not impossible for MRSA to cause urinary tract infection.

In brief: Yes
Mrsa infections from the bloodstream can secondarily infect the kidneys and lead to kidney abscesses and utis.
A primary MRSA UTI or kidney infection would be very rare.
