You can view my article, Creating a Hyper-V Cluster on Windows 2012 which covers how to team two adapters (near the top), and further down how to add a vSwitch.

You do not need a vSwitch for the iSCSI (unless you want guests to use iScsi), and you will not need a vSwitch for the heartbeat.

Your cluster should end up seeing 3 networks - you can force which one is to be used for cluster communication by going to the Network node, right click the network and then have only one of them set to "Allow cluster network communication on this network" as per the screenshot.

Cluster Network 1 Properties
Just set the other networks to "Do not allow cluster network communication on this network".

As far as Live Migration is concerned, you set this by right clicking the "Networks" node, and selecting "Live Migration Settings".  Move the preferred network to the top, and/or uncheck the networks you do NOT want to use for Live Migration.

Hope that helps.
