    I am not sure which version of Android the play has, but try this ...

    menu>settings>wireless & networks>wifi settings and scroll to the bottom and see if "add Wi-fi network" is an option. You will be prompted to enter an ssid, if it is.

    Sorry, couldn't tell you. I don't use hidden SSID's as they are only a stop-gap security measure and generally cause problems. If you broadcast your ssid and use wpa2 security you should be fine.
