Is there an easy way to install gnome 3 and the latest packages in

No. If you want GNOME3+gnome-shell, reconsider wheezy.

Now that Wheezy is frozen (and will, within 6 months or so become
stable) will it be possible to keep Gnome2 when upgrading, or will we be
forced to use Gnome3?

You'll have to use Gnome3. You can use it in "Gnome Classic" mode (fallback) for now, but it has been strongly hinted that that option won't be available for much longer.

I've switched to XFCE, as Gnome3 was too much of a PITA to try and use on my laptop (I used pinning to keep Gnome2 as long as possible, but was missing out on important updates). XFCE is sufficiently "Gnome2" like for me, once I'd tweaked a few things.
