In brief: Yes and no

While neither of thes directly improve the lung disease itself, but being more fit you use less oxygen and use it more efficiently.
Weight loss and physical fitness improve the quality of life of asthmatics - which certainly helps.

In brief: Yes

Exercise is very important, in general, and especially for asthma.
All asthmatics should be able to do whatever they want to do -- including exercise. While exercise can be a trigger for some asthmatics, in general exercise is very good for the lungs and helpful.
