In brief: Not Likely

Most bunions will cause pain at the first metatarsal joint.
If pain is causing you to limp or change gait, it is possible to have knee and leg pain.

In brief: Hallux valgus

No. Bunions are at the base of the great toe.
You may want to consider other causes of your pain such as sciatica, neuropathy, or peroneal nerve issues.

In brief: Not directly

However, if your bunion is painful enough to alter the way you stand and walk, that can cause pain due to compensation for it.
Consider visiting with an experienced foot surgeon.
