Will it stop these incessant virus PMers that seem to be trading and/or hacking forum accounts?

No. 2FA is useless against phishing sites.

For those phishing sites that are copy of this forum, that would be useful. Stolen passwords wouldn't be enough then, at least for people who enabled 2FA.

Monero's privacy and therefore fungibility are MUCH stronger than Bitcoin's. 
This makes Monero a better candidate to deserve the term "digital cash".

I meant against the phisher account buyers themselves. Wouldn't they have to get the 2FA secret keys from the people they buy accounts from?

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.
