I need help with my scientific work.

I'm studying incorporation in contemporary English. Could you help me with it, please.

Is noun-incorporation widely used? I mean such verbs as spoon-feed, guest-conduct, kite-surf, island-hop?
And is it true that speakers tend to form such verbs (with the noun+verb pattern) spontaneously when they want to express smt in a more laconic way or for some other reason? Can you give some examples?
Thanks in advance))
