Am not sure if the name I put in is correct. But I need to know what that stuff is. It's some kind of paint that does sealing.

And, is it my understanding that a good paint on top of exterior stucco acts as an aid against water seeping into stucco?

The paint you are talking about is called elastomeric and it goes on at least 5 times thicker than regular paint. It was designed for stucco to bridge across cracks and if done properly is waterproofer. It is a 3 coat system to be done properly. It will not bridge large cracks and they will have to filled with an elastomeric patching material.
Go to a local paint store and find out what they carry and see if they will have a rep come out and look at your house and do the specs for useing elastomeric. These systems need to done just so in order to work and not have a failure. This is a product that needs to be applied by a proffesional painter as a homeowner would not have the equipment to apply a product like this.
