No, not with that engine. I simply cannot IMAGINE that engine relies on muffler backpressure to run. Without the muffler, it'd run awfully loud, though, and may catch things on fire, so you'd best see about getting the muffler put back on.
As to not starting - Does it have a fuel shutoff valve? Check that, then check the spark plug(s) and the fuel level in the tank. Check the charge on the battery, charge if necessary. Test for spark. Unless you think it might be flooded (which would also prevent it from starting), try starting it with a SMALL bit of spray starting fluid.
Does it have a rider-on-the-seat interlock? Are you heavy enough to satisfy the interlock seat? Can you figure out how to get past that interlock?

it's on the bottom of the motors oil pan, but if you find it too hard to get to, there is a suction device that pulls the oil out the dipstick tube
I have never tried one of these Walmart Oil Change Pump Kit
the one I have is a vacuum pump up style and they are about $150 Oil Extractors
