God no, I hope not, otherwise thery'll be a huge Worgen and Boomkin outbreak.
Yes their dna would change to that of the animal, but their humanoid mentality and personality remains, so they wouldn't be attracted to animals. If they stay to long though, and they lose themselves to the form and 100% become the animal then their choice in mates would naturally change as well.
Also the Drakonids are not a form of breeding. They are humanoids changed magically into the Drakonids.
I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!
I don't think genetics matter in Azeroth. They could probably mate with an animal in elf form(because let's face it, only elves would do that) and get knocked up from it or knock it up depending on gender.
Druids in animal form can heal naturally, which would indicate that they have the DNA required to rebuild any damaged flesh. Since we know that a body rejects and attacks differing DNA from the host, even to some extent during pregnancy, we can assume that there isn't a grab bag of DNA present in the druid during shapeshifting. If DNA is responsible for the shape of life in Azeroth, then yes.
However, there's reason to believe that life in WoW is structured via the soul rather than by some DNA like mechanism. This would be the only explanation I can think of that would give an answer other than "yes" to the question. It however also means that anyone bunking with Varian is committing bestiality.
Well, you know about loki and his horse son.
Who knows, Blizzard probably will not want to touch that even in the lore, angry soccer moms would stop paying for the sub of their kids if they know the game even goes as far as acknowledging "bestiality".
This gave me some disturbing images in my head. No doubt a very good morning coffee thread.
Would the animal inherit druid abilities?

Short answer: no.
Essence and spirits of the great animals, lending power and whatnot.
I'm fairly sure that if it had to be explained, in-universe actual animals can tell the difference on instincts and smell.
