In brief: Yes, but

If you're Insulin resistant, you may get pregnant but if untreated it may lower the odds of getting pregnant, increase the chance of a loss, and increase the likelihood of problems with you during pregnancy as well as issues with your baby.
Clearly, it's critical and best to get healthy before getting pregnant.

In brief: Depends on severity

Insulin resistance may be associated with infertility, mainly if it affects ovulation.
Some women have a condition known as polycystic ovary syndrome, characteristics which may include but are not limited to ovulatory dysfunction (irregular menses), hyperandrogenemia/hirsutism, obesity, and Insulin resistance. Best to consult with ob/gyn to more accurately specify one's chance for conceiving.
