    so the first time I sync after swapping HD's and installing os x will it keep all the current info on my phone or will I get that "this is synced with another library" message and wipe everything?

    Data like music,photos,videos ect has already been backed up but I'm concerned with settings,sms ect

    I believe the data will be synced, so any contacts on your iPhone but not on your computer will be copied to the computer and vice versa. However, why do a fresh install at all? Carbon Copy Cloner can copy your entire hard drive partition onto the new drive.

    because fresh installs are like a brand new pair of sweatsocks
