I have no idea what a "hotspot button" is. It sounds like someone creating
jargon to confuse and impress people.

There are many ways to create simple links in HTML <a href...>link text</a>
that don't require any JavaScript, buttons in HTML <input type="button"
onclick="do something in javascript" ...> that always require JavaScript,
links that look like buttons that don't require JavaScript, links that do
require JavaScript, buttons that submit a form that don't require JavaScript,
image maps, etc, etc, etc.

Perhaps if you told us specifically what you want to do, we can tell you
whether what you want to achieve can be achieved with or without JavaScript.

A "hotspot button" Google 573 hits !

seems to be an area of a window/image/etc that acts in a seperate way on
click or mouseover or whatever.

A clientside or serverside html mapping could provide such spots.

M$ Frontpage even has a "Polygonal Hotspot button" or so they say, I
wouldn't come near it, to make such spots.

Is it done using javascript?

No, HTML mostly:

<map name="abc">
<area onMouseOver="showpopup(this)" shape="rect"
coords="137,99,256,174" nohref>
</map>

<img src="abc3.jpg" usemap="#abc">
