No, fallacies make arguments invalid but not premises or conclusions false.

They do however mean that conclusion has not been backed up by the argument and thus needs a different argument.

We're agreeing, but using different terminology. What you call arguments leading to a conclusion I call premises leading to an opinion or argument.
