In brief: Not likely

Although it might effect how you hear yourself it should have no effect on your voice or vocal tract.

In brief: Usually not

But depends on size of hole.
Small holes - probably not. Larger holes or holes associated with chronic drainage from the ear (chronic infection) can lead to moderate to significant hearing loss, which can change the perceived timbre of your voice as well as the perceived timbre of other sounds / instruments / music around you.
