I used to use it for scale and mealy bugs, not RPW though. Thankfully we don’t have RPW in this country.

How often do you apply? I've read that some people even mix it with kelp/fish emulsion during foliar feeding. Since I don't have a lot of palms like the rest here, I was thinking of trying this.

Yes it can be mixed in as a foliage feed. Probably applied once a month by memory. Neem oil disrupts the hormones in an insect so that they don’t mature or reproduce effectively. It’s not a quick knock down. It’s meant to disrupt the life cycle and end it eventually.
