Posting here because my concern is with the SRC_URI in some ebuilds continuing to work if I try something...

I host some orphaned tarballs on audiodef.com. Some of those were adopted in the pro-audio overlay. I want to move my hosted tarballs to gentoostudio.org, but I don't want to re-orphan anything. So if I move the tarballs, can I use a server redirect? If so, what is the best way to do that so that wget follows the redirect and fetches the moved tarball?

If it is a server redirect at the HTTP level, and the filenames stay the same, it should work. Anything that involves HTML in any way will likely not work.

If both domains are on the same server, would a fs symbolic link work?

Well, portage (or more precisely wget/curl) only talks to your http/ftp server, it doesn't know anything about the underlying filesystem. How the server treats your symlink depends on its configuration.
