I think gorilla's use those punches, treating their arms as huge clubs and just swinging them into the target."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

Yeah, I'd call them hammerfists. That's how I've known them since my first days of martial arts research (before I trained); mostly from reading the WW2 H2H manual."Prison is for rapists, thieves and murderers. If you lock someone up for smoking a plant that makes them happy, you're the fucking criminal." - Joe Rogan

In my opinion, dirty dirty noob opinion mind you, who cares ? Just close your hand in a fist and start droping it hard on his face while the other hand takes is hands away from the target if he tries to block, hammerfist all the way, its powerfull and quick

The proper way to punch from mount is with your elbows.

That's retarded though.
Look, if you want to learn how to do punches from the mount, do punches from the mount.
Start out with a.) a heavy bag, and progress to b.) a live opponent. Just use 16 oz boxing gloves and headgear. Do it as a drill. The guy on the bottom has to defend/escape, and you try to hold him in the position and GnP.
Beyond maintaining the position while you're punching, it's not really complicated. Most grade school bullies can do it.

How to punch in mount? Act as if the only "joint" you have is in your shoulders, and swing those babies! Gorilla style.

I've heard those gorilla style hammers are the only way to go.
However, pinning the head and dropping bombs works well, because by pinning the head against the mat, it has nowhere to go. Heavy punches + no give = caved in face. Plus you can use the planted hand for extra balance, and even as a pivot for an armbar if they give you an arm.

Away with your functional and sensible drills!!
As for chain punching from the mount, I see it in every _ng _un demo video. That's like how every technique ends. I like the way Dai suggested. Prop a hand on their face/head, then drop with an elbow on that same arm. Short power, quick and you can take your time setting them up (measuring it off).
I'll have to try Phrost's way, though. Since I can't hang the heavybag in my garage yet, I might as well use it for something.

Anyway, take your heavy bag and do GnP from all positions and see which one you like best. Go for 3 minutes of each top mount, side control (knees and elbows), knee on belly, north south (mainly knees), and even from bottom closed guard. Or do it for 1 minute each and work on quick+smooth transitions from position to position.
Knee on belly is awesome especially if you're good at doing the takedown from the clinch that lands you in that position (Scrapper says "Sumi Gaeshi"). Not only can you drop bombs on the guy from range, but if you do the takedown right he won't be thinking about getting punched for a second or two because you've drilled his ribs by putting all your weight into them with your knee when you land.
