    Whenever anybody sends me an iMessage to my mobile number, it doesn't come through to my iPad. Is there a way to enable this on my iPad?

    No, because your iPad doesn't have a mobile number. If they send it to your email then both iPhone and iPad get it. To ensure that it both works go to Settings>Messages>Receive At>Caller ID> then set that to your email. Do that on both devices.
