People around me kinda give me an odd look since I'm constantly playing with the treadmill and adjusting the speed up and down but nobody has questioned me about it yet.
The treadmill I'm running on has an interval program, but it's more of an incline run than a speed interval. Would the incline be more helpful in place of the speed?
Not unless it leaves you severely winded..
The whole concept of HIIT is to get the heart beating near it's max, working your body past the anaerobic threshold (~85-90% of max)
Hills probably won't achieve this.
