30 amp double pole breaker

Is it within code to use #10/2 wire and have the white wire as a hot lead as well as the black wire when connecting to the 30 amp breaker?

Yes, but the white wire needs to be remarked some color other then white or green.

Yes, this can be done in a cable assembly. The white should be re-identified as a hot conductor by tape or magic marker in a color other than white, green or gray. Normal practice would be red, black or blue.

Would it be acceptable to wrap the exposed white wire with black electrical tape?

Yes, just wrap all exposed ends of the conductor.
