No.
Not only is there a major generational problem, the main issue is Intel vs AMD.
You can't put a AMD Ryzen CPU on an Intel motherboard. Ever.

Acromuz I know I'm a bit new, sorry about that. I've had the wrong socket right off the bat when building my first pc. You need to make sure that your motherboard's socket is compatible with the cpu's socket. (Lga xxxx with lga xxxx, amx, with amx, etc...). There's no way of making intel fit with amd or intel fit with an older one of its sockets. The pins just don't align and forcing it in will just ruin your cpu or motherboard. So, just make sure you check your motherboards socket and check the cpus socket before buying. As for the ram, if you're really on the budget I would just look on amazon for some ram clocked around 3000 mhz. Again, make sure the ram is ddrx and your motherboard accepts ram that is ddrx. And also, make sure and check the highest clocked speed it will accept. No use in buying something that won't go to good use. If you have a bit more cash to throw around, though, I would look for a set of 32 gigabytes. I have 32 in my pc at 3200mhz and it works perfectly. Also, just make sure your ram has a heatsink. Heatsinks usually look like a chunk of metal/plastic on the top covering up the pcb part of the ram.

And also, it looks like your board is SUPER old. The i7 4700k would be your best bet for a new processor on the board. The board also accepts DDR3 ram, ONLY, and allows for speeds up to 1066mhz. Not the best, in my opinion, but if you're wanting to play basic games like Minecraft, Csgo, Valorant, Cod, etc, you can definitely run them on lower settings pretty well, but if you choose to go with an actual video card, you could have a decent setup. If this is just for doing work, you have a great pc already.

Edit: Sorry, 1600mhz for the ram
