Can the knight and king in anyway mate a queen and knight?
As far as I know, regardless of the opponent's skill or number of pawns/pieces, it is impossible to Checkmate using only a knight and a king, since the knight can't cover enough squares to completely block the opponent's king.
Hope this helps.

No. The problem is that the queen covers too many squares.
Consider this (illegal) checkmate position with king and 2 knights vs king and queen:
[fen "kq6/2N5/KN6/8/8/8/8/8 w - - 0 1"]
If you remove either knight then the queen can take the other one.
