What piece would you hit when its notated the same as a hi-hat (a G, or the space above the 5th line) but it has an accent above it. I read it was an accented hi-hat but could it be anything else? Maybe a ride or crash cymbal?

small circle above the note = open hihat
small circle with verticle line above the note = half open hihat

and I assume other accents are regular accents...just hit the thing harder

crash cymbals is the first ledger line above
ride cymbal is the highest line in the stuff

That would just be an accented high hat, as in literally hit the high hat harder on that stroke than a normal stroke, assuming you mean this accent: ">".
#5
What about if it has the open symbol above it and then a succession of just xs? Would that mean all those are open also until there's a +?

I'm not a drummer, but looking at some drum notation I have here yes, I presume it works like that
I can't find any use of two circles or two + in a row

also found a circle with a + in it to denote half open hihat

im a drummer and it means accented.

end of. there is no other meaning and he isnt asking about the o's and +'s.
