Multi-byte nops are also nops.

You can use them for padding. They might, or might not, be more efficient than multiple single byte nops when you execute them. Test it to see how it performs on your system running the code.

It is different. You can't arbitrarily enter the instruction at any point. You still have to begin at the proper place.
Code:
my_padding_1:
  times 6 nop
;...
my_padding_2:
  nop WORD PTR [rax+rax*1+0x0] 
;...
jmp my_padding_1 + 0 ; okay
jmp my_padding_2 + 0 ; okay
jmp my_padding_1 + 2 ; okay
jmp my_padding_2 + 2 ; FAIL
