I have an existing 3-way switch, and would like to add zwave functionality to the fixture. Can I use WS15Z-2 to replace one of the 3-way switches... thereby leaving one standard 3-way switch in place for manual use, and use the WS15Z-2 in both manual and Z-Wave operation?

You would need to use the appropriate 3-way accessory switch; in this case the WS15Z-2, and the WT00Z. The WT00Z does not control a load- it just functions as an accessory.

Please check out the documentation tab to be sure the wiring in your situation will match the manufacturers requirements.

If you have a traditional wiring setup (with traveler), then you might want to check out a Master/Accessory setup

Again, check out the documentation to ensure the appropriate wiring is present.
