In brief: No

No. Carotid stenosis is the blockage of blood flow to the brain which significantly increases the risk of stroke.
A blockage in the carotid artery would more likely decrease blood flow/pressure in the brain.

In brief: No

Just the opposite, decreased pressure.
If the jugular veins are blocked this can cause increased pressure of the brain.
