As far as I know, L2TP is newer and it has improvements to overcome PPTP limitations, one of them PPTP issues with NAT and others.

WPA/WPA2 are designed for local wireless network security, in other words to protect AP from unauthorized access.

L2TP might be used over public networks for authentication and data encryption between hosts (not only for local).

PPPoE or HotSpot migh be as alternative for WPA/WPA2, however you can use mix of them to ensure more security.
