Is this the same as MLV(Mass Loaded Vinyl)?

I think it is - but I'm not sure. In either case, read the reviews posted at that link. It seems that the details of the product have been changed from what you see in the picture. May be functionally different, or may not.

Also consider what you need MLV for in the first place. For wrapping stuff it is helpful, because MLV is flexible.

I'd be using it to lay on the return plenums that are flush with the joists. Also will be doing duct liner inside the plenums as well. Would this product work?

What would be the best way to adhere this to the plenum? Staple gun? a certain glue? Thanks.

Stapling works, if the MLV has been extruded. Cast MLV is much easier to tear.
