No, muggles cannot learn magic. Because in the 7th book in Snape's memories, Rowling shows a scene where Lily confronts her sister about the letter Petunia wrote to Dumbledore. Dumbledore had gently refused to accept Petunia at Hogwarts, on the grounds that it would be impossible for muggles to be able to learn magic. One had to be born with it.
 
Also, it is my opinion that muggle-borns do have magic ancestors, if not parents. If a magical person marries a muggle, their childrens' ability to learn magic decreases right? And if those children marry muggles, and those children marry muggles, and so on, the magic in the families lessens and lessnes, but it's still there. And a child 8 or 10 generations away could inherit that magic gene. She/he are then thought of as muggleborn, because their parents or grandparents are not magical. That's my theory.
 
Same with pureblood families who have squibs. I don't think they're completely pureblood. One or two members of the family may have married muggles, thus introducing non magic genes into the family. Then, a poor unfortunate child may have inherited that non magic gene, thus becoming a squib.
