Answer 2

Image Noise and Film Grain Overlay are two common techniques used to do this. They help to mimic the grain/texture in film, which happens randomly from the silver halide particles that are suspended in the gel emulsion of the film. This doesn’t happen with digital recordings, so it can be mimicked by adding “noise” or by adding an overlay that’s recorded from blank film.
