It is often the case that explicit solvent simualtions (which take
advantage of PME to handle long-range electrostatic interactions) can be
faster than the corresponding implicit solvent simulations (which don't
make use of PME). Balancing off against this is that, generally,
conformational exploration is faster in implicit solvents, so you should
not just look at ns/day as the only metric.

(2) Is it appropriate for simulating very long polymers, say
