the adult fly is probably a Calyptratae, possibly a Tachinidae or Rhinophoridae.
Without wing venation, I can't tell you.

With the specimens in hand, I most likely could be more certain

Yes the larva is a beetle, not sure what type though. I am sure that it is not a fly larva.

Yes, there appear to be a head capsule and several pairs of legs on the left side of the larva. That make a Coleoptera larva very likely.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
