For example, would the Black Belt increase the power of HP Fighting, and would a NeverMeltIce increase the power of HP Ice?

Yes, hidden power is a normal in name only.

proof

"Ninjask used Hidden Power!
The Ghost Gem strengthened Hidden Power's power!"

straight from smogon.

So yes, any type specific attack boosting items affect H-powers Hidden type, and not it's "normal" type.

Hope I helped.
