A question: is it possible that Eru created Ainur in a way that they were unable to breed, because he feared that some of them would become powerful beyond all control? Just a thought...
No, because the Ainur could breed when embodied.

As for the orc origins discussion, there is a good bit to read about it in Myths Transformed from Morgoth's Ring. Here's a good thread which is not exactly on-topic, but more or less related: Could an orc be uncorrupted?. And there's a related post or two in this thread: Eagles: Heroes Without Depth.
