Does it have the option to make the welds look better? Is their a way to get a more consistent weld pattern? While hobbyist and novice welds can be sloppy and resemble your example, professional welders perform much cleaner welds, especially on commercial equipment

Yes: modifier stack is not collapsed on the end result. You can always change the cellular map in displacement modifier with your custom texture (or the one below, though it needs some color correction and tinkering ). And there is an uvw_Xform modifier down below the modifier stack, where you can change the tile count for mapping along spline.
