it should be "alter system checkpoint".

it should be ok if you issue this. I didn't test it. but I assume that when you issue "alter tablespace xx begin backup" all subsequenct actions will be redirected into log files.

Yes you could give the alter system checkpoint while doing hot back up.

As soon as you start your hot back up, the System Change Number (SCN) is frozen in your file headers and the back up program continues to work as normal. When you force a checkpoint the change still gets written to your data file however does not update the file header. This ways the recovery program identifies that the SCN in the file header is wrong and hence looks for the redo log to apply the delta changes.

Here's a good article on this one

Hi,
  It's more useful to issue "Alter System Switch Log File" as it implicitly cause a check point.
Then you will have more consistent data files when compared to issueing "Alter system checkpoint"
