Provisioning for the Mobile Hotspot is also provisioning for the MBB Connect service. This provissioning is for "both types" of service. Verizon changed the billing for this option and combined them into one so it is $20/2GB and then $20/GB overage. It's actually better pricing than it was previously due to the insane overage charges that could occur.
As far as I know Verizon currently has no plans to enable a 3G Hotspot on any blackberry device. And there are "rumors" but no information on any upcoming blackberry devices to Verizon in the near future. Verizon is concentrating on 4G phones now and Blackberry has none of those at this time nor rumors of any. Even the rumors for the Storm 3 do not include any information on the phone being 4G. Without a 4G phone I doubt Verizon is going to put much stock into adding features to any blackberry unless RIM does it themselves.
