I don't know that one filler is much better than another. The issue is if the trim sees any abuse the filler is apt to pop loose.

Possible although the most likely cause is furniture and stuff being moved thru that doorway.

For minor patching, like nail holes, drywall compound works fine, I hate caulk, it shrinks and leaves small depressions.

For something larger, i use bondo, wood filler is ok for big voids but not so great for shallow areas!
