In brief: No

Not usually. Cervical x-rays only focus on the cervical spine.
Any other parts that show up would be very partial at most, and hard to interpret. Separate specific shoulder views would be needed.

In brief: No

It may show part if the neck but technically is a shoulder x-ray , not neck.
If radiologist finds an incidental finding on the neck, then clinical correlation & neck studies will be recommended.
