What does Noun-verb + も + する mean? I'm not even sure this is actually a structure. I found it in these 2 sentences:

  1. 昨日のパーティーは料理もおいしかったし、雰囲気もよかった。(料理 [も] 美味しかった [し])
  2. リサはよく勉強 [も] する [し]、アルバイト [も] します。

Thank you

Those two sentences show the most basic usage of the particle も. も is a marker which means "also". From Wikibooks (emphasis mine):

The "also" marker も
も is quite simply a marker that says "also". It replaces the particles は, が and を but can also follow other particles. This can also be used to form a large list of words all acting as though one of the basic particles (は, を, or が) were affecting the whole list.

しょうねん も しょうじょ も じょせい も だんせい も にんげん です。 Boys, girls, women and men are human.

In your first example sentence, the two が were replaced by も. In your second example, the two を were replaced by も.

  1. 「料理おいしかった」「雰囲気よかった」 → 「料理おいしかった」「雰囲気よかった」
  2. 「リサは勉強する」「リサはアルバイトする」 → 「リサは勉強する」「リサはアルバイトする」
