Yes, if the string slows rotation of the fan so it overheats.

Bionaire BF1209R motor possibly burned out from a string caught in blades What are some solutions besides getting a new fan

The motor has a fuse buried in the windings near where the wires connect to the motor. Sometimes, if you're careful, you can expose the wires and jump around the fuse. Otherwise a new motor in in order.

I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...

A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

Remote lightswitch won't work.

This may be obvious but you may need to turn the light on with the string and leave it on. Then the remote should work. Sorry if this doens't work or is too simple.

String caught in the motor

OK - first things first. There's no way a shoe string, or anything else, can possibly get caught in the motor. If the string isn't wrapped around the brush roll it's probably gone through in to the bag. Please reply, describing the symptoms you've observed in as much detail as possible, then maybe we can figure out just what's happened.

it probably slowed or stalled the motor down so far that if its variable speed it burned out the speed control triac in the speed control,you need to access the speed control board and find the problem,otherwise if the motor isn't harmed too bad,direct wire(bypass) speed control and run on high

Ceiling fan won't blow any air

if its turning its either sucking or blowing air. There is a switch or a pull cord to reverse it. prove it to yourself with something light like a feather or piece of paper or balloon.
