From urdb.gov.pk:

نُمائِش (ضم ن ، کس ء) ~امث
۱۔ ظہور ، اظہار ، نمود ؛ تماشا ۲۔ (i) دکھانے کا عمل ، دکھانا نیز نظر آنا (iv) (مجازاً) دھوم دھام ، شان و شوکت نیز سجاوٹ ، زیبائش


Does نیز here mean "also" or something else? Or "and"?

Glosbe gives the translation of نیز as "and"; Oxford gives "also", "even", "again", "likewise".

All of those are possible meanings for نیز depending on context. Here I would translate it as "also."
Currently away from Unilang.
