"()" indictes that a function is called. You can use a expression like
(get(paste( ... ))

[1] 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
[1] 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
[1] 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
A better way might be a Data.frame / matrix representation:
> xx <- data.frame(Vec1,Vec2,Vec3)
> xx+x
Vec1 Vec2 Vec3
1 3 3 3
2 4 4 4
3 5 5 5
4 6 6 6
5 7 7 7
6 8 8 8
7 9 9 9
8 10 10 10
9 11 11 11
10 12 12 12

??? Perhaps this includes a useful idea:
> x + apply(xx , 2 , sum)
Vec1 Vec2 Vec3
57 57 57
or:
> apply(xx , 2 , function( yy )x + sum(yy))
Vec1 Vec2 Vec3
57 57 57
Hope this answer will help a bit
