Hello, I am new to the forum.Just ordered a BB Playbook. I would like to know if tethering can be done between the BB Playbook & a Iphone 3g. If so how would i do this?

You would need to jailbreak the iPhone and use MyWi to turn your iPhone into a WiFi hotspot. Then the PlayBook can connect via WiFi. (As far as I remember, the native hotspot feature is only available on the iPhone 4 and 4S. Might want to double-check that.)

You won't be bridged, so your PlayBook will be pretty limited in functionality.
For bridging, you need a compatible BlackBerry handheld.
