CCF is just compressible foam that will decouple the two surfaces to which they come in contact. Used properly, yes, it will be more effective for reducing vibration than just CLD tile alone, but it needs to make contact with both surfaces

Kind of... it doesn't so much as fill the void as it keeps two hard surfaces from vibrating against each other. So more of a shock absorber. Pretty effective, too, as it took care of a lot of my rear deck issues

It can be used anywhere you need to keep two surfaces from coming into contact with each other where there isn't a tremendous gap in space. I use CCF in my doors to make sure I don't have any sound from my speakers leaking behind the door card (using rings that go from the outer edge of the basket up to the door card). The end result is actually a significant improvement in midbass.

No, it's not the only place, but my VW came pretty solid from the factory. The only trouble spot I've had is a trim panel over my rear deck which was taken care of using strips anywhere the panel and body met. CLD alone wouldn't take care of it either.

A cheap way to take care of larger gaps (don't laugh) is to buy pool noodles and cut them as needed. Actually works really well.

I have seen that before actually. So it's pretty much to keep plastic from smacking metal
