Mates run an app on iPhone to make their phone a WiFi Hotspot to connect a Laptop to.

Is there a recommended app for Android.

I have a Galaxy S   GT-I900  running Gingerbread  XXJV0  2.3.3

Or is there something built in ?

Under Settings > Tethering it states - "Share phones mobile data connection via USB' .... not what I want, but if I click on this it does seem to give WiFi security options .. not sure why it is under a USB menu.

I also tried the wifi hotspot (mobile ap) inside that tethering settings. But I can't seem to secure the wifi with password.

When the mobile ap is activated, then u can change the name of ur wifi and save it.
But when u tried to change the Open network to WPA, the save button will be darken (which means i cant save it?!).

The phone has just been updated to gingerbread.
When it is in Froyo, there isnt this problem.

Any ideas how to get through this?

Works great for me natively and you easily set it up in tethering options.

Settings - wireless and network - tethering - mark mobile ap

For password check mobile ap settings
