If your are looking to simply seperate your Messages adn FaceTime on the iPad from your iPhone, you can just as easily use Email addresses (assuming they are verified on you AppleID).
The phone number Verizon assigned to your iPad is basically a cell transmission identifier for data services. Its not a phone number in the traditional sense. I'm not sure what the implication of using it for Non SMS messaging and FaceTime might be.

You cannot use that phone number for FaceTime and Messages. The only phone number that you can use ia your iPhone number.

As James inferred, you can't use the iPad's number for messaging of any kind. The only number that you can tie iMessages and Facetime to on your iPad is your iPhone's.
