And does this add or subtract from the distance of the shot?
It depends on how you are defining "turn."
All else equal, a disc thrown with hyzer will turn the exact same amount. By this, I mean the amount the disc actually rotates if you were looking at the profile of the disc from the rear during the flight. If you throw a disc flat, and it rotates 15 degrees during its high speed flight (which will cause it to track to the right, if thrown RHBH), you would expect the same throw, if thrown with 15 degrees of hyzer, to stand up to flat.
As far as distance goes, hyzer flipping allows for more potential.
I'm assuming that you are already familiar with the three "stages" of disc flight. Above cruising speed (or high speed turn), at cruising speed (no turn or fade), and below cruising speed (low speed fade)
Imagine you want to throw a straight shot for as much distance as you can accurate get using a somewhat understable disc. The point of using a somewhat understable disc is to try to minimize fade. Of course the trade off is that the disc will have a significant amount of high speed turn. So in order to throw the disc flat and be able to get a straight shot, you'll have to power down some in order to avoid the stage of flight in which you are above the disc's cruising speed.
Now if we throw that same disc using a hyzer flip, we can essentially harness the high speed turn into another straight portion of the flight, allowing us to put more power behind a shot, yet keep it relatively straight still. The hyzer flip will be longer by however much distance is covered during the high speed portion of the flight. This is typically a significant distance.
As far as using a hyzer flip for max D, the concepts are the same as throwing pure anhyzer. The difference is where the apex in flight is. Comparatively, a hyzer flip's apex will be lower and further down range. This makes it much more fairway friendly for max golf D, as you typically have less lateral movement than throwing a pure anhyzer. Of course, both have smaller margins of error when compared to other golf shots.
