Yes no problem: Humdified air is commonly used for congestion cased by the common cold or upper respiratory conditions. Does not matter warm or cool air

Yes and no: Most environments are humidity filled during hot weather and a humidifier would not benefit you much unless you were is a very dry area. Once you push the humidity above 50% at home you foster growth of dust mites, above 70% mold. The best answer would be to find out what your humidity is at home and plan accordingly.
