Yes, I usually add noise in my BW pics. It feels more nostalgic and dated in those instances.

It depends. I'm not a fan of using noise myself, but it can be done very artistically. On the other hand, I like DOF effects, which some people don't like. Both are tools that can be applied well... or not.

I think ultimately a lot depends on whether it is a part of an effective artistic vision, or a defect. Using a generic Instagram filter to attempt to "artify" a bad cell phone shot? Icky. Working within the limitations of a medium or imitating that effect? If then photo is good and compelling by itself, it can add to the image.
