Is there anyway I can connect my phone to the internet, via Bluetooth on my Mac.

In other words, my Mac has an internet connect, my phone has Bluetooth, I want to pair the two, then use my phone on the internet.

Is this possible?

Yes - run the bluetooth setup assistant. It asks if you would like to use it as a BT modem during the setup. You'll need to check with your carrier for specific details.

I don't need my carrier, as I am out of range.
No carrier or anything, I just want to use my laptop's internet connection on my phone.

And with the BT modem, is that making the phone a modem for the laptop, or vice versa?

Your initial post was confusing, and I thought you wanted to use your phone's internet connection for your laptop. To answer your question, no there's no way to do it over bluetooth. You would need a WiFi-enabled phone to use your home internet connection on your mobile.

Is there such thing as a way to add WiFi to a non-WiFi phone like mine?

No.
