Sort of.

There are a number of different freons, and for many reasons are used
differently for refrigeration, HVAC and freezing.  It's usually $$$
motivated, meaning whatever is least spendy for the appliance

Most likely not. Neither did harry. I expected harry's totally obfuscatory

Most household units only have one gas and one compressor.  The freezer
compartment is the only part actively chilled by the heat pump, the
refridgerator section is cooled simply by letting some air flow between it
and the freezer, or by having the freezer compartment wall that faces the
refrigerator section un-insulated.

Opening up the air circulation between the two will help freeze the
refrigerator section.

But be wary of adding insulation to the refrigerator section if the outside
coil is not visible.  Many units place this heat-rejection coil just under
the outer surface.  Adding insulation over it (i.e. on the outside of the
unit) would simply raise the coil's temperature and make the unit have to
run longer / more often to keep the same temperature.  Of course adding to
the inside is okay except it reduces the volume for storing ice cream :-)
