Um. Pairs or Teams contrasts two different types of contest. Matchpoints or IMPs contrasts two different methods of scoring. It is not the case that pairs is necessarily scored by matchpoints or that teams is necessarily scored by IMPs, though I grant you those are the most common combinations.

Bidding Blackwood when holding a void is generally a bad idea. I would bid 3 over 3, showing interest in a heart slam and first or second round control of spades. If partner cooperates with 4 (first or second round control of clubs) I would bid 4. If partner bids 4 after either 3 or 4-4, I'd bid 5. If partner has good hearts, he should bid six. Alternatively, one could just raise 3 to five.
