I just got an '04 Outback and am thinking about installing a
functional air scoop on the hood. I've read that some WRX scoops with
fit on Outback hoods. Is this correct, or does anyone know where I
could be Outback specific scoops or has done this before??

if you are talking about the impreza outback the hood from a '04 and up WRX
will fit. It's the same car.

how would that be functional? the scoop on the WRX/Forester XT is to get
air to the intercooler... the Outback doesn't have one...

I was thinking it would provide cooling the engine compartment. It
seems that of the three Outbacks my family owns, the engine run a lot
warmer than other 4 bangers I've had. Would additional air/ventalation
for the engine help keep things cool enough to have a noticable
effect, or am I out of line on this??

I guess it would add airflow, but to be honest I wouldn't get to concerned
about under bonnet temperatures...
