I'd like to create a WiFi hotspot using my Incredible HTC phone. What software do I need to add to do this or can it be done with the built-in software?

All software for it is built-in. Look through Setting->Wireless & networks menu. There must be items like Portable Wi-Fi hotspot and Portable Wi-Fi hotspot settings

If your OS version is 2.2 or above you will have the option by default in the settings.

Setting->Wireless & networks->Tethering & portable hotspot-> Tick Portable hotspot.

I got this to work by rooting the phone and installing CyanogenMod 7. The WiFi hotspot for tethering other devices is built into the operating system.
