If a hidden service has to communicate with the clear net but doesnt want to either appear to be coming from a known tor exit and masking its true IP what would be the best way to achieve something like this? Would a second hosted server and forwarding the data from HSserver to the nonHSserver and then out to teh clearnet be the best solution?

    Well, yes but the service will not be hidden. A single hop proxy won't provide a lot of protection against an adversary with subpoena power, the ISP of the onion server or the ISP of the second server.

An answer is simple: use a second HS! You're using a second HS as a proxy or OpenVPN server for the very deep HS of yours. And no problem will be regarding the privacy/location/deanonymization of your first HS
