Dwarf hairgrass maybe? Looks to be too crazy to be micro swords or chain swords.

I always pictured micro sword as a thick cluster but it does make sense if it was a small piece. Lucky duck I want some but cant find any around here.

Plants can help water parameters(aka that yucky ammonia stuff we talk so much about) and prevent algae growth(by taking the nutrients that algae needs). Beyond that, I dunno.

Yes, it can help water quality, and it is some sort of microsword. However, you do need to root it in the substrate. It's not a super-easy plants. It would do a lot better in smaller-grain substrate. It also needs med-high light to grow really well, and you may find it does better with ferts.
