I suspect I'm not the only one confused by your post.

AFAICT, PDF HD refers to a PDF reading app for Apple hardware/software, 
so to say that you want to export "as a PDF HD" is a bit nonsensical. 
The first question might be whether PDF HD can accept the various PDF 
formats or only certain ones.

It's also not clear whether you understand that Scribus is primarily a 
PDF-creating application, not a PDF reader. To be sure, it can 
incorporate a PDF in a document, but there are limitations.

Why a printing service would care about PDF HD another quandary.

Rather than being more verbose and perhaps confusing you (if I haven't 
already), I think I'll leave it at that and wait for your response.
