Can knee pain lead to shin pain?

Possible. See a sports medicine specialist to determine what to do for your issues.
Yes. Knee pain can refer to the shin. Knee pain can alter gait and provoke shin pain.
Muscles of thigh/leg. The leg includes the ankle/knee/hip joints and all the associated muscles in the hip/thigh/leg. So think flesh=muscles/tissue and not bone/cartilage/meniscus with leg pain! start self-care with a wellness program of vits, magnesium glycinate, sleep hygiene, exercise, self massage, chiropractor, yoga, heat, epsom tub soaking, and stretching. I like acupuncture and trigger point injections.

Hard to say. Knee pain your entire life would tend to mean that it is not an acute or progressive problem like a fracture, ligament injury, muscle tear or even tumor. Chronic things include arthritis, meniscus, or even vascular.

I have inner knee pain that hurts all the way down my shin bone what could this be?

Thigh muscle. If you knee is normal, the pain can come from injured muscle and fascia in your thigh/leg. The injured areas will be tender, and there will be at least one ropey cord of muscle with knots in it. This pain is called myofascial pain.
