I have the Samsung LCD UN557000 which is 3D will a standard Blu Ray DVD player allow the 3D on the TV to play, although the blu ray is not 3D

No. The Blu Ray player must be 3D capable. Regular Blu Ray players cannot play 3D discs.

The better question here is whether the quality remains the same when the TV converts a blu ray movie from 2D into 3D compared to when you have a 3D blu ray player with a 3D TV? Is there any difference in the 3D quality?

A pure 3D source always looks better than converted, upscaled 3D lacks a bit.
You'll also see the difference in a movie that was converted post production verses a film shot in 3D.

Cable offers 3d movies, like on on demand. Can I still watch it without the 3d blueray player?

As long as you are watching it on a 3D TV, I would assume so. This assumption is based upon my experience with a newly purchase LG 55" 3D TV. It has a premium feature in which 3D features are obtainable over WiFi. Since I do not have a 3D BlueRay DVD player, yet, I watched several of these features in 3D and they were definitely three dimensional. The signal sent by your cable provider should therefore be basically the same as that obtained over the internet and you should be able to watch it in 3D. Additionally, the signals that the cable company sends to your TV do not go through your DVD player; it would be impossible for even any type of DVD player (3D or not) to affect the cable signal (also 3D or not 3D).
