No, there's not file descriptors for those things in general. However, there is /proc/PID/exe that shows you what binary is running, and /proc/PID/maps and /proc/PID/map_files/ that shows you what's mapped where. Also, even if these things didn't exist, the kernel can still keep track of it. Not everything in the kernel's memory is exposed via /proc.
