Benefits of large forward lean and benefits of neutral?
I was wondering what the differences will be if I increase the forward lean angle on my hot doggers? and what the benefits would be if I reduced the forward lean(apart from making them easier to walk in), I heard something about it affecting landing backseat
The amount of forward lean that is right for you is that which is based on your flexibility needs and secondly what feels good to you. Flexibility trumps what you think you might like or what you heard is good for a certain style of skiing.
Freestyle skiers ski with both aggressive amounts of forward lean (Jossi Wells, Sage, Mike Riddle etc) and some ski with a more upright stance (Elias, Andreas etc). Both work for freestyle, but it depends on what you need and what feels good to you. Your boot-fitter will help you find what is right for you based on flexibility and range of motion tests.
Like many things, too much forward lean is just as bad as too little.
is there any way to tell without going to a boot fitter?
They're the kind of solid 7's that give the other solid 7's a bad name

play with it and see what feels best to you, if you have hotdoggers which i believe have removable inserts that come with boots, you can do this yourself with out any risk of ruining the boot.

Your bootfitter will only know if the stance is right according to your inputs. Like someone just mentioned, there isn't a right or wrong answer to this question. It just depends on what feels natural and what is comfortable for your riding styles.
