yes, if I understand your question, you would use them both during a mix.
pre delayed reverb just delays the "bloom" or "tail" of the reverb.
delay, or echo, is typically where you hear specific repeats.
To further confuse things...I often run the send to my delay/echo to a reverb either before it hits the echo, or sometimes after the echo, the reverb softens and diffuses the "edges" of the echo.
If youre working in a DAW, set up a vocal hitting a few different combinations of things, and try them on, and see what appeals to you.
