    Is Pauli exclusion principle due to magnetic interactions between spins of electrons?

    Spin is only one factor for exclusion. Any atom with more than two electrons will have some electrons with the same spin.

    Ferromagnetism is between electron, no spin. You have to take care about orbitals too.
