Does anyone know this or have I found something new?

So I took the whole entire "Materials" and "Media" files of the Beta and threw them into a folder and put that folder in the custom folder of Retail HL2 and it works perfectly for looking at the beta maps in Retail hammer. Some textures are still missing but most of them show up perfectly fine.

Yes, people have done this before. The problem with it is that it will overwrite the retail materials as well with their beta counterparts, causing some weird things in normal HL2 maps. I think someone did something a couple years ago like this, but all the materials were put into a subfolder and the vmts were batch changed to reflect that, so that it wouldn't overwrite.

Ah, I have noticed that alot of my textures for the game are broken by doing this, might need to play around with this more
