Using Simulink MATLAB file s-functions (or other means to call into MATLAB), I think you'll get what you want.
The built-in capability in R2012a is primarily for putting algorithms on the NXT, which it doesn't seem you are doing. Also external mode, is for remote monitoring and parameter tuning (that does work over bluetooth). But it isn't really for being able to hook up a joystick from the host to drive the NXT (although there are likely ways to get that done via external mode).
Anyway, just from what you have in your question, I believe I would point you to looking at the other interfacing option. Note that you can explore both and then see which best suits your needs.
