Installed Debian 7.1 "Wheezy" and it has Gnome 3.4, I'd like to upgrade to Gnome 3.10 if I can. I gave the sudo add-apt-repository deal a try but it can't ...

Try this, it's known to work in Ubuntu and I see no reason why it wouldn't work in Debian:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop3

Tried that and it and I get "failure to upload package". I wonder if their Repo is down at the moment? Might try again later on, don't see why I can do something similar to "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" to upgrade Gnome.

It could be down. I don't think you will do it with a dist-upgrade because as far as I'm aware (and correct me if I'm wrong) Gnome 3.10 has not been officially released yet and is still in the experimental stages, so wouldn't be in the standard repositories hence why you needed to add the above one.

I know I won't do it with a "dist-upgrade" because that'll just upgrade Debian 7.1 to it's latest incarnation and not effect Gnome at all. I was just asking if there was a similar command that would upgrade the Gnome 3.4 that I already have to it's latest version.

Unlikely I'm afraid. Debian tends to not have cutting edge software. It looks like 3.8 has only just made the experimental repositories!
You could have a go at compiling it yourself which is fun."I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

I wonder how Chris over at the Linux Action Show got a hold of Gnome 3.10 and from the Arch Repo no less? So I guess they're just running with Gnome 3.4 for now because it's the "stable" one and they'll get us the newer versions at a later date. Not that it's a huge deal, I'm running MATE on my Point Linux installs on my #1 and #2 and just wanted to update Gnome on my #3 that's running Debian 7.1. Guess I'll just have to be happy with what I have for now.
