Sound arguments can only be DEDUCTIVE. Inductive arguments can be Cogent. Arguments do not have to be either deductive or inductive. For example there are abductive arguments. I will leave that to you to search online. As for the fallacies you mention those have exact definitions that you need to know. So the answer to those questions about appeals to ignorance and begging the question above in you question is NO. Your terminology is way off by the way. Arguments do not have to prove their premises. The premises ought to be objectively true and then when the relationship of the premises is correct true premises must yield a true conclusion.
