If I bred a Nosepass with Hidden Ability with a Magnemite, will the Magnemite have Analytic, his Hidden Ability?

It's impossible for Magnemite to make eggs with anything except a Ditto, and only the mother or non-Ditto parent is ever eligible to pass down a hidden ability. HAs can never be passed down to a different evolution line than the parent who starts with it.

What you can do is start a Magnemite SOS chain, much like almost any wild species in Alola. Then you have to figure out which one has Analytic after it gets called in (it's impossible for any of them to be the lucky one prior to the 11th successful call, and the odds get better the further you go), and finally catch it.

Yes but this is for Gen 7 only, as I’m in Gen 4 is there any way to get HA Magnezone?
HA's didn't exist until gen 5, so you can't get a HA Magnezone in gen 4. :P

An easy but not easily available method for hidden abilities is the friend safari from X and Y. In Kiolude City (unlocked after defeating the champion), this safari can be accessed where Pokemon have a 1/3 chance of having their hidden ability. Magneton happens to be a possible Pokemon to find in a steel-type friend safari (the player has a friend safari for each friend, each safari has a specific type).

You can't. Magnemite/Magneton/Magnezone can't breed with anything except Ditto, and Hidden Abilities didn't exist in Generation 4. :P

Source, Source

Hope I Helped!
