I have a dongle with a giffgaff sim, which is in my laptop, which has Windows Vista. Is there any way to create a hotspot to connect my wifi only tablet to?

Try these steps, I can't try it because I'm on Windows 7 and have no wireless card
1. Click Start, Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center .
2. Click Set up a connection or network.
3. Click Set up a wireless ad hoc (computer-to-computer) network, and then click Next.
4. Enter a name for your network, choose a security type (WEP is probably fine, given that you're sharing your network with people you know), and then enter a security key.
5. Check the Save this network box, then click Next.
6. If you see a box marked Turn on Internet Connection Sharing, go ahead and click it.

Unlikely I think.
WiFi operates at 2.4GHz, a different frequency band to mobile phones. So, unless the dongle is also specified to work as wifi its unlikely it will be able to tune to the band.

This would allow you to use your dongle and make a WiFi hot spot
