For info, some of the info about the HOT layer here might be useful.

I would like to know this as well, is there a command to switch viewing modes in Maperitive?

(not a direct answer to the question, but) maybe TileMill might be an option? It should understand the HOT stylesheet.

Maperitive supports different map styles but they have to be coded in the Maperitive styling language. Nobody has yet taken the humanitarian layer and translated it to Maperitive's style language (which is different from "Carto"), therefore the humanitarian style is not available in Maperitive.

It is however possible for anyone with enough patience and time to actually do this work - start reading with this chapter in the Maperitive documentation.

This is nothing to do with the OSM web site - the fact that the OSM data exported is the same no matter what map you're viewing is by design.
