I respect you is "Nakuheshimu" from the verb "kuheshimu" Shikamoo is a greeting and its response is Marahaba

I respect you = Nakuheshimu, Shikamoo = Nakusalimu

So, would this phrase be used in the midst of a conversation? So far, I have only seen it as a formal way to say hello.

It is like saying hello to an elder or someone important

It should not be "I respect you" (there is a different way of saying it within a conversation), but rather "formal greeting" or so :)
