Conjunctions for non-defining relative clauses?


Are there defined and specific conjuctions for non-defining relative clauses? We usually have learned that conjunctions such as but, and, for, though, etc are related to non-defining relative clauses, so the reason there is "etc" is that we can relate all conjunctions for the grammar? Am I right? Thank you so much in advance. 


For example,


Tom is watching TV, while he is eating a snack.

-> Tom, who is eating a snack, is watching TV.

This is the last question about non-defining relative clauses for sure, so please help me out.

Do you think "while he" can be converted to , who like "and he, but she,etc" can be converted to ",who".

What do you think? I can't wait to hear from you.
