Not always! "Verzoeken" specifically means to request, to ask someone to perform an action. "Vragen" can also be used in that way, but is more generally used for asking questions.

However, in this case, can I say hij vraagt me om te stoppen instead of hij vraagt me te stoppen?

Hartelijk bedankt

so not 'om me te stoppen'? I've seen that order in other phrases like 'om kaas te verkopen'.
