The lipids are the membrane (bilayer) which let the substances in and out of the cell and proteins in form of complexes support the metabolism of aerpbic respiration.

Yes.

Lipids are broken down to fatty acids and glycerol. Fatty acids are broken down to 2-carbon acetyl coA units in the mitochondria, via Beta-oxidation. Acetyl coA enters the Krebs cycle and is used to make ATP.

Amino acids first have their amine group removed (deamination). The rest of the chain (Keto acid) can be used to generate pyruvate, acetate and the intermediates of the Kreb's cycle.
