Is citing precedent something that is done at case conference/settlement conference
It is something that should be done, but is not done very often.

To do it, you would attach the case to your conference brief and write in your brief how it applies to your case.

Don't show up with a handful of cases, the judge/master will not have the time to read them.

My understanding of these conferences is that it's held in a room with opposing party/counsel and a judge. Based on the above, it sounds like this is held in a courtroom. Is that right?
All of the rooms in the courthouse are court rooms. There will be a court reporter and registrar. However people are not making submissions. How close it is to boardroom meeting, or to a "slightly less formal" court appearance, depends on the judge presiding.
