In brief: Yes

But only for a short time (for hours) and should drink water or have some salty food afterward.

In brief: Maybe momentarily

Sorry, the lost volume is rapidly restored by the body, so no significant / sustained change in bp.
But, regular donors do get a sense of stress relief from this act which helps others, so that might help lower it a bit.
