A mobile hotspot needs to be configured through your carrier. Have you asked them to add it to your phone plan?

Whether you have a setting for Personal Hotspot or not is controlled by your carrier. Personal Hotspot must be supported by your carrier & provisioned on your account. So, contact your carrier & see if they support Personal Hotspot, & if they do, make sure it is properly provisioned on your account.
