1

See Sifsei Chachamim and refer to 32:44:151:1.

2

Rashi: Moshe officially appointed a translator for Yehoshua - enabling him to expound in Moshe's lifetime, lest people say that Yehoshua had no importance in Moshe's lifetime.

3)

Bearing in mind that Moshe had already changed Hoshe'a's name to Yehoshua, why does the Torah call him Hoshe'a?

1.

Rashi: To teach us that his new appointment did not go to his head and he remained as humble as he had been before.

2.

Hadar Zekenim, Rosh: As long as he served Moshe, it was proper to call him by the name that Moshe called him. Here it calls him by his [initial] name. Everywhere [after this] he is called Yehoshua, for he was used to this [name].

3.

Ha'amek Davar: Moshe recited Ha'azinu, and when he came to explain it, the Shechinah did not speak from his throat, so Yehoshua helped him through Moshe's Shelichus. He is called Hoshe'a because he did not do so as Yehoshua, the Rebbi of Yisrael [after Moshe], rather, as Hoshe'a, Moshe's Talmid.
