Firstly, sorry if I use any incorrect terminology.

Say I have a chord progression in say, G major. using 5 chords. So G5, C5 and D5, for example. I IV V, simple enough. Now if I was to throw in a A5, (the II) would that give a minor feel simply due to it's relation during 'normal' chord progressions? Or is the lack of a third, major or minor, completely taking out any tonality?

With powerchords there is no chord progression, only succession. Playing A5 in there won't make it sound minor, because the 3rd is what defines the chord. (and to a lesser extent the 7th)

Yea, without the 3rd the chord lacks a certain definition. I personally don't find them as moving or "powerful" as full 1 3 5 chords because the third is such a huge voice in the chord.
