    Sorry, I don't think you can hook up your iPad to the phone, the USB cable wont fit on one end.

    Possibly. Try looking up a tethering app.

    Yes you can by enabling hotspot, your iPhone must have cell active. You must have a data plan and Personal HotSpot with your cell carrier.

    on iPhone
    1. settings> Personal Hotspot
    2. turn on
    3. set Wi-Fi password

    on iPad
    1. Settings > WiFi
    2. look for the name of your iPhone
    3. connect with password set in step 3 above.
