Is Gil important in the game?
Yes. To strengthen your units and vision cards, you have to have vast amount of gil.
Is it worth to use NRG restore for farming the chamber of gil on Saturday and Sunday?
Yes. It's recommended.
Is it worth to spend gil for nomal summon?
It depends. Leveling abilities and vision cards are prefered in most cases. If you have enough gil, normal summon will be the option to invest gil into.
During certain events, this is one of the few ways to get shards for whoever the featured unit is. Since these are hard to obtain, the normal summon in conjunction with Chamber of Gil grinding can be a viable way to get a couple missing shards. Ultra rare unit shards are quite rare in the normal summon, however.
It should absolutely be mentioned any unit with Steal can steal more gil snappers (the item) from gil snappers (the enemy), all the way up to the large size. If you're farming gil, you should be bringing thieves and stealing from every gil snapper on the map.
