Can I use my iPhone MAC address on another device?

I have no clue what I am doing.

I tried to connect my XFiniti hotspot to my XBox One X but it won’t work. So I looked up online and learned about an iPhone MAC address but am not sure what it is. Anyways, it said that I can enter that into my XBox and then I will have internet. So questions:

1) Does it work

2) How does it work

3) Is it legal

4) What is it

    1. Yes it can work if done correctly.

    2. It makes the hotspot think the Xbox is your iPhone

    3.  Yes it's legal

    4.  Mac address is the address the hotspot uses to identify your device.

    You would probably need to turn off the wifi on your iPhone while you are using the Xbox.  Follow this procedure:

    Open Settings on the Xbox One

    In the Console section select Network

    Select Advanced settings

    Select Alternate MAC address

    Type in the alternate MAC address and press Enter

    You will have to restart the console for the change to take effect

    Then connect the xbox to the Hotspot network.

      You also can just got to the wifi settings on the iPhone and "Forget" the hotspot network so it cannot connect to it/
