Trunking is only for ISL... If you want to have more speed on your host, you should add a software that can enables load balancing on several HBAs.

yes, in this case, depending on the storage array ,you would want to present the storgae to multi front end ports and zone the hba's to see it down each front end port. Then use a load balncing software like powerpath to load balance the I/O down the least congested path.
