So I heard not all areas in New Zealand have vodafone 3g coverage but apparently it is possible to deliver 3g services using the 2g spectrum:

Could vodafone do this? And would gsm only phones still work?

No. This is still using 3G equipment just using the 2G radio frequencies. It is not what you are thinking.
