Depends. If you've stopped and they've crashed into you from behind, then no.

If I don't have a license and I at fault in an accident?

States will difer, however, you can be cited for not having a license (obviously), but just because you were not licensed does not automatically make you at fault in an accident. For example if you were sitting still at a red light and rear ended, driving through a green light at intersection and someone runs a red light and hits you, or a drunk driver hits you head on, in your lane-NO, you are not at fault, you just need a good attorney. Good Luck

Who is at fault when collision occurs and one driver has flashing yellow and other has flashing red light?

The person at fault is the one that ran the red light or the amber light. Rules of the road are .... if you are already out in the intersection to make a turn on a green light and the light goes amber and then possibly turns red, you are inside the law, but, if you race out into the intersection on an amber light and it turns red and you get hit, it's your fault. EXAMPLE: A vehicle screamed out into the intersection on an amber light, then suddenly the light turned red and the oncoming traffic started up and hit that vehicle then it's the person who raced out into the intersection.

Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway and hits a car semi blocking that driveway?

The car that is moving is normally the one at fault. No matter how someone is positioned you should not drive into them (going forward or in reverse). It therefore seems to me that the car backing out of the driveway is at fault.
