You can create BizTalk hosts in a variety of ways -- use an MSBuild task (custom or from a library), PowerShell script, VBScript, etc.  It doesn't make much difference which method you choose to use.  You can plug the step into your .btdfproj in a custom target that will be called during your deployment process.  Documentation for that is here.

Personally I avoid setting up hosts this way because the deployment project is for a particular application, and hosts are global configuration items that I consider more appropriate for server installation/configuration/tuning.  That said, there's nothing wrong with doing it this way if that's what you prefer.
