    No. They are very different things.

    Intelligence is about how we process information, draw ideas together, interpret things and come up with new ideas.  Inexperienced (I do not believe unexperienced is a normal word) just means we haven't done something or haven't done it enough to be good at it.

    Intelligence is not the same as cleverness.

    Some people are clever (as in 'well educated') but not very intelligent.

    Some people are clever but have yet to put their knowledge to use, making them inexperienced.

    Intelligent people can be inexperienced.

    We are all inexperienced until we do whatever it is.  I am inexperienced at brick-laying but I have done a little of it. I am inexperienced at ballroom dancing and also lack the basic knowledge to be able to even try it. There are many things at which we are all inexperienced but that doesn't mean we are not intelligent.

    No, of course not. And any dictionary will tell you so.
