thank you

will i just have to use the same username login details from my current homehub and put that in the business hub? 
currently on the business hub it set to : btbusinesshub@business.btclick.com

also will the hub still receive future updates and won’t write over the business hub modem mode settings?

yes you need to use the normal residential login  bthomehub@btbroadband.com   and any password

updates should be ok and automatic

Surely if you are using it in the modem only mode, then PPPoE authentication would be done on your own separate router?

No, the PPPoE username and password are entered on the Linksys. No credentials are required on the hub as a modem. If there is a setting on the hub for VLANid, set it to 101
