In brief: No

Only those infected/carrying malaria and then it depends on exposure and inoculation of the malaria itself during feeding.

In brief: No!

Mosquitos that bite a person with malaria carry the malaria.
Then they bit a person who doesn't have malaria and infect that person (maybe) with the malaria that the mosquito is carrying on it's "stinger" (the part that bites you). Malaria is uncommon in the us.
