Do commentaries build as personal books show up when building a Collection set?  

For example: if I were to build a collections set of my Hebrews commentaries and put in the rule bar the following rule - type:commentary subject:n.t.hebrews - should all the Hebrews bible commentaries show up, including any that are personal books?

they should - if all of them have exactly that subject. Note that you have to use the Add Fields button to get the entry field for subject in the PB tool:

 

Moreover, sometimes the subjects in the library are unreliable. And if you have some commentaries from the Faithlife eBook store, formerly known as Vyrso, you'll miss them because all of those have no subject at all and are type:monograph (e.g. such as "Exalting Jesus in Hebrews").

I'd advise using an OR mytag:commentary-hebrews or such to catch those. I personally put a tag #79 - Hebr on all my Hebrews commentaries (and the like for the other commentaries)

The 'correct' LOC subject would be Bible. N.T. Hebrews--Commentaries.
