Static and Dynamic IP addresses?

How often do dynamic IP addresses for ATT wifi wireless hotspots change? What causes them to change?

I am trying to set up a server off my ATT wifi wireless hotspot... I understand these have a dynamic IP address.. Am I able to pay to change it to a static IP address?

You can't.  Cellular does not have a static IP. 

Consumer and prepaid cannot select static IP.   Phones, tablets and watches cannot select an IP.

   * Business accounts can set a fixed IP on cellular hotspots.*  (and not cheap)

Can I use some sort of Ethernet switch or hub that would connect with the WiFi dynamic hotspot and the Ethernet switch or hub would create a static IP for another device to connect to?

Again, no.  Cellular devices do not have static IP, no matter how you connect to it
