Naming photosynthetic bacteria

Do photosynthetic bacteria use the same frequencies of light (and
to the same extent) as plants do?

Does anybody have a reference for the relative energy as a
function of frequency?

Isn't it possible (with perhaps enormous amounts of processing)
to use photosynthetic bacteria as food?  Would that be about
as energy efficient as using algae?
