I've enabled pNFS for NFS server settings in kernel config. I use NFS at home for file sharing. Will it give me some performance improvements or vice versa?

I use NFSv4 at home. Assuming your data is all on one server, I don't think pNFS will do anything for you. My impression is that pNFS is for putting the metatdata on the NFS server and the data itself on many servers, to improve bandwidth, performance, etc. I don't know that pNFS will hurt, but for the typical home situation I wouldn't expect it to help.
