Hi there i am looking to be able to list all Storage that is presented to a test ESX 5.1 Host, then take the LUN names ( Starts with naa.600 ), then be able to tweek Disk.QFullSampleSize and Disk.QFullThreshold then apply the changes to all our other ESX 5.1 hosts.

The script should be able to output the current storage that is presented to the hosts to file, and then after the process above is complete to then list the storage that is presented again and output to compare results.

I don't think powershell can grab any information from esx as it is Linux based OS.
You may check with a Linux admin for pearl script or something similar to it.

But could this same thing be scripted in Powershel to be ran from a windows 7 workstation? and to also change the settings on multiple hosts.

Yes you can run these commands from windows 7 desktop provided it has powercli/virtual center snapin installed.
