Look good with one minor change. You will connect the ascom to PMC8 via USB not wifi. You don't need wifi for your setup.
I am concerned the camera might not like being on a hub....just something I read. No verification.
If you haven't done it yet your camera attachment to your scope needs a few things. Also with a newt you will have your camera hanging off to one side of the mount....might make balance sort of funny. Have you put your camera in your scope and achieved focus?

Thanks everyone for the help today, its greatly appreciated. I would have purchased some stuff that wouldn't have worked if not for you guys.
So what I've gathered today leads me to this configuration, let me know if I'm missing anything:
Scope setup will
Imaging camera Nikon D5300
Mount Exos2GT PMC8
Guide scope 60mm/240mm
Guide camera asi120mini
Imaging camera to USB Hub
Guide camera to USB hub
PMC8 unit to USB hub via serial to USB cable with FTDI chipset
USB hub to PC
Connect PMC 8 to PC via wifi
Use ASCOM and POTHub for PC to mount communications
Stellarium to replace explorestars for mount control, object location and goto
PHD2 for guiding
And backyard Nikon for camera control
Then it's just a matter of getting everything to work properly. I've already watched alot of tutorials on PHD2 and I've used the android version of stellarium but havent used its mount control features.
Thanks again for all the help. I've seriosuly done a ton of research online this past while and some of this information I've never ran into in my travels. Time to pull the wallet out. Summer is like 2 months long in northern Alberta Haha
