Is the HMS permit needed for all species of tuna (yellowfin, blackfin, bluefin) or just for bluefin tuna in North Carolina?

You do not need one for blackfins, but they are required for yellowfins and bluefins, even for recreational boats.

Also, it isn't an NC permit but a federal one. Also required to keep billfish and some sharks

Most people don't pay attention to that part but if you are targeting any of those species you are supposed to have a permit, doesn't matter if you have intentions to keep or not, just the act of fishing for requires it. There is also reporting required for fish kept.

Yeah, but with the nature of gulf stream trolling it is easy to say you are fishing for mahi or whatever unless you are drifting with a hunk of bloody bait for sharks or pulling marlin lures.
