I've been reading up on this filter and correct me if I'm wrong, its for shooting indoors with daylight stock, right?

 

If I am right, here's my second question.

 

Is it necessary to have?

Your correct.  Another way to put it, the 80A converts tungsten light to daylight.

It's less commonly used since you lose 2-stops with it to convert tungsten to daylight balance and tungsten-lit situations tend to already be lower in level than daylight-lit situations. Let's just say that I don't rent one regularly unless I plan on shooting day-for-night on daylight stocks.

In this old Vimeo at the 9:20 mark, the photographer uses an 80A filter on 500T, so I guess doubles up on the Tungsten (?). Ends up very blue and very much day-for-night. I can't say I often hear of situations where people have to use daylight film in a tungsten situation.
