In brief: No

Lymphoma itself is not communicable/infectious.
However, some infectious diseases may be associated with the development of various types of lymphoma. Eg -- gastric malt (hp0, ocular (chlamydia psittaci), spelnnic (hcv), t cell (htlv1), nhl (hiv), primary effusion (hhv8), ipsid (campylobacter jejuni), primary cutaneous bcl (borrelia burgdorferi).

No, lymphoma is not contagious and does not spread from person to person.
There are some infectious agents associated with certain types of lymphoma but still, the lymphoma itself is not contagious.
