Is it possible to connect my phone to my arlo hub via the HUB's wifi that the cameras use?

No, it's a dedicated WiFi that is encrypted. Only the cameras can use it.

That doesn't mean that it can't be connected to - just means I need the pwd, and an app to view the streams. My hub is significantly closer to the cameras than my router/AP, and being able to connect to the hub would make setup & adjustments much easier. Moving the router isn't an option, and out at the cameras, I can barely connect to it.

It's a moot point since Arlo isn't going to provide info that would allow you to connect anything other than cameras to it. If you need stronger signal, you either need to move the base or use a second one so all cameras have optimal signal. You can use a long Ethernet cable or a WiFi or powerline extender to connect the base in a different location as needed.
