Hologram blocks are non-solid, transparent, and glow. Nothing can be attached to or mounted on them. They can be used for decoration, for interior sections to be replaced later by functional blocks, or to extend your ship's docking reach without risking collisions with a station.

I don't think they glow. They're just translucent.
Very flexible decorative blocks, because they don't produce excessive bloom up-close like Light blocks do and can be used to cover turrets and torpedo bays without impeding their function.

They can glow, it depends on the color you use, but they don't glow as bright as glow blocks.

Yes, indeed.
Hologram blocks do glow when placed in certain areas.  They are also translucent, so they “disappear” when viewing at various angles.
