In brief: Yes

Particularly mumps orchitis has been associated with sub-normal male fertility, but it is not all-or-nothing.
Semen analysis is a very reliable measure for assesing whether harm has been doen.

In brief: Yes

Severe orchitis especially with fevers affecting both testicles can cause infertility.
Once treated, the testicles should return to normal sperm production.
