Is this intended to be added like a normal P card? The layout is different, unlike normal P cards, and it doesn't have the Mummy's Mask logo or P set indicator where they would be expected for promo cards. If it were intended to be used both for PACG and PAdv I'd expect it to match other promo cards since the digital form could easily be made to match the digital game regardless of the original's form.
Honestly, I haven't treated this one as a true promo card plus I'm not sure the size of the card matches the standard PACG cards nowadays.
This one I just collected (at Gen Con) and put aside.
I think it was stated that you should feel free to add the card to any set, hence no set description (I actually read that somewhere this week, but can't remember where).
My guess would be to add it during AD1, like the other promo cards. I think the app layout of the card is meant to show people that the app actually exists, in case they are unaware.
I agree it would've been better to keep the design of the physical card and the digital card separate, but I think the main point was to promote the app.
It matches the card layout from the app. There is no reason this will not work with the rest of the cards. It is like old Magic cards vs. the newer versions. They can be played together but they look a bit different.
I also believe that the promo card has a code to allow you to unlock the card in the app as well.

That's what I've been doing - there's been a Goblin Golem of Obsidian in my Runelords box since I got home from Gencon.
And honestly, it's one of my favorite promo cards that's existed so far. I don't boon farm pretty much at all, so "discard to get one card closer to the villain/henchman with very little risk" is pretty sweet.

Are these promo allies class-deck legal for organized play? PFS Guide states
You may include other promo cards only if you haveearned them as a reward.
But it is a bit unclear with these since they do not have an earned reward like the end-of-season promos.
Specifically asking about Obsidian Golem, Eder, and Pallegina since they aren't considered set-specific.
As the guide is written I'm assuming no but thought I'd ask to double check since I found nothing on the forums regarding this. Thanks!
To be clear:
For Organized Play, you can add these promos to *the game box*. That's legal.
But you cannot add these promos to *your Class deck box*, so there is no way to keep them in your deck from scenario to scenario. And since they are promos, their set indicator is 0, so they aren't very useful for earning upgrades.
