Can you use a lightning email template in a process builder or for email alerts?

I'm thinking of switching all my classic email templates to lightning and I'm trying to figure out the limitations and considerations.

Can you use lightning email templates in a process builder or for email alerts? Or is this functionality only available to clsssic email template. I'm seeing different contradicting articles so I'm looking for clarification.

What are the benefits of switching to lightning experience?

In process builder, emails are fired based on Email Alerts.
And unfortunately, you cannot use Lightning email templates in Email alerts. So, in short, the answer is no.
