It basically allows you to have low car that can go over speed bumps.

Its basically the alternative for hydraulics, it allows you to have fully adjustable suspension, but instead of having hydraulics, you have air bags, that are powered by a compressor. and yes they could be used for performance because you get a lower center of gravity. but its mostly for looks.

If by "performance" you mean "decreasing performance" then yes.

Toooooootally different animal, obviously. A well designed air-bag system can be used to assist in towing and payload issues.
