You shouldn't need to take off the intake manifold at all so, to answer your question, no. However, if it the exhaust manifold you mean, the answer is still no. It should be a multi-layered metal gasket and the only reason to replace any gasket is because it is damaged.

NO, a 2.4 and a 2.2 are totally different engines. Take a look. On the 2.2 the exhaust manifold is in the front of the engine bay and on the rear of the engine bay on the 2.4......Under the hood it just ain't the same.
