No, but in 1912 before the NFL was established the ball looked like a soccer ball, but they changed it to egg-shaped.

### Does the weight of a ball change with inflation?

Yes, it does. But the weight added by gas (if that is what is being used to inflate it) does not change the weight of an average ball very darn much. You'd have to have a really sensitive scale to actually find the weight of the air in the ball. In fact, someone working in the lab wouldn't weigh the thing. They'd use the size of the ball to find its volume and then look at the pressure and temperature of the gas in the ball and make a calculation to determine the weight of gas. It'd be a loooot faster and probably as accurate - if not more so.

### Compare the changes in the weight of a ball with the changes in the balls mass as the height of the ball above earths surface increases?

As the ball's height above the Earth's surface increases, both the weight and the mass of the ball remain constant. Weight is the force of gravity acting on an object, which decreases as the distance from the Earth's surface increases, while mass is the amount of matter in an object, which remains the same regardless of its position relative to Earth.
