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.
