It's true, VZW charges a monthly fee to tether, via cable or WiFi.
1. You can root and tether for free.
2. You can buy a tethering app from the app store, without root access, and pay a one time fee for the app.
3. You can pay VZW the monthly fee and tether.
Keep in mind that tethering without a plan is against your Terms Of Service with VZW.
Having said that I don't know anyone who's been caught tethering and charged by VZW. It can happen and they can cancel your service.
I used to tether using an app I got called Tether, on my Blackberry. It worked great and I didn't use it much, about 2GB a month.

This is because it doesn't change the APN, which mobile hotspot does.
Does the usb tethering feature?
If it doesn't, they can't tell, unlike mobile hotspot.
Also, do you get unlimited data with the mobile hotspot feature on a lte phone?
I know you do on a 3g phone...
