You can mine two or more coins simultaneously. Your wallet or the pool have to support it.

No, the same hashes are applied to both chains. So its like mining another chain for free.

I just don't get why there isn't a pool operator that has setup something like LTC + all of the merge mine-able coins together. It would mean more money for the same work, everyone wins.
