I don't quite understand your question.

If I set my iPhone 4s to work on WiFi at home (I do that) and then wander outside away from WiFi range (or drive away somewhere else), then cellular takes over automatically. It has always done that. Just set up both and the iPhone will use WiFi if it can and cellular otherwise.

I have an iPhone 4; when iPad 2 came I decided to buy the wifi type since as you said wherever I don't have access to wifi internet I will use my iPhone if necessary, though I spent less money then.
You may also consider that if you jailbreak your iPhone you have the choice to use some tethering app (like MyWi) to share it's cellular data/3G internet with your iPad. Therefore I suggest the wifi iPad to lower the cost if you mind.
If your asking where you would go within your iPhone to set this up look under settings -> general -> Network -> Personal Hotspot.  You'll find the instructions there on how to connect using the phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot.

When you click on that option it will either allow you to setup a personal hotspot for tethering your iPad/Computer/etc or it will tell you that you need to purchase the option from sprint.  Tethering this way or using the iPhone as a hotspot requires an additional cost to sprint.
