I know you can get STD through semen but what about bacterial infections like pneumonia or viruses like flu can you get that through swallowing semen?

In brief: You are confused

Any organ system can be infected by any number of organisms.
By swallowing you get organisms into the GI tract, not the lungs or whatever. Then what you swallow (semen,in this instance) has to be infected.
