In brief: Yes

It will loosen the secretions that are impacted on the bronchial walls.
For better result use mucolytics & adequate hidration. Another option is to nebulize saline (0.9%) or even 6% saline that serves to expectorate.

In brief: Somtimes

Sometimes people with COPD can have thick phlegm that can make them short of breath.
Steam can sometimes help loosen the phlegm to help it come up.
