Hello, I'm Arabian by the way! and I'll try to explain..

-The letter ع exits from the middle of the throat, and also the letter ح share it the same exit. You can write on google مخارج الحروف and you'll see a picture for the head with the throat and every letter exits from where. If you are interested I can teach you the exits for all the alphabet (We studied them near in school)

-How to pronounce it? See this video and similar to it.

I'm not an expert but the "3" is more of a drawn out "A" sound as compared with the "2." And when I say "A" sound I don't mean like the "a" in apple. Rather it's more in the back of your mouth and throat. I hope this helps:)
