https://snapcraft.io/brave

As said in title, is it good idea to do that and can i have complete isolated environment from duplicate(parallel) chromium or brave browser installs?

Because i noticed "Current limitations" in the bottom of above snapcraft article about User data and runtime locations, Well known names, locations, addresses.

snaps by default are isolated and permissions need granting to resources. The parallel option simply allows you to run several instances of the same application, possibly with different settings and so on. If you need this functionality then parallel installs is one way to achieve this.

Is there way to make them recognizable on gnome menu?

I installed,
sudo snap install chromium
sudo snap install chromium_another

In the menu displays,
chromium web browser
