Does Pulseaudio give the ability to capture the audio output stream from 
a specific app?
I can't seem to find an option for this. The only capture options I have 
in pavucontrol are Monitors of the sound devices, and audio captures of 
the sound devices.

Is this feature implemented as part of pulseaudio? If so, how do you 
make use of this?

If not, why not? It's a pretty essential feature for stuff like sharing 
audio over services like Discord.
