In brief: Immune?
You probably mean immune hemolytic anemia, which is a result of mismatch between antigens present on surface of red cells.
It can be acute, which can be life threatening or chronic or delayed, which usually causes anemia and jaundice.

In brief: No
There is an acute form of hemolysis which can occur if you receive mismatched blood but transfusions are not the cause of autoimmune hemolytic anemia.
