Yes, a normal interlaced setup where you reuse the same field in the other frame.

Usually not, because you are forced to an incompatible 25/30Hz (PAL/NTSC) refresh.

In any case from what I remember from back in the days (with the CRTs) a little flicker is visible anyway, because between a frame and the next the phosphors turn off slowly,
it is only attenuated because the line immediately below is with the same signal.
The final effect is to have a less brilliant image, a bit flicky, but with almost invisible scanlines.
I don't think it's a mode that has any advantage ..
