I have a python miner which is only capable of scrypt and sha-256 mining. Is it possible to mine cryptonote monero on it? Pool link(i use minergate): stratum+tcp://xmr.pool.minergate.com:45560

Not possible. Monero uses the Cryptonight hash algorithm which is distinct from scrypt and sha-256. However, you should be able to find other CPU mining implementations for this algorithm. The place to ask would be https://monero.stackexchange.com.
