So is there anyway I could mount a GoPro style gimbal on my XSP?
The only reason I ask is for mounting some of the IR cameras on the market.

You will not be able to replace the existing X-Star gimbal, but you could probably attach some kind of self-contained gimbal/camera system to the landing gear. The battery and/or performance would probably take a negative hit though.

When the X-Star and X-Star Premium were announced at CES 2016, the X-Star Go was also announced. However did not make it into production. I assume that the X-Star Go was an X-Star with a GoPro gimbal.
You could copy the X-Star gimbal attachment plate and mount something there, but it would probably be more cost and labor efficient to get a platform with GoPro support.

I can't believe that a mounted gopro would be better than the system you already have. Just seems like a lot of effort to mount a camera that will not have the same functionality that an integrated system has. I understand the question but do not think you would be better off with a duct taped gopro.

You are 100% correct the current system is great for videos but I want to mount a MAPIR camera for doing farm survey flights. I would just like to expand the capabilities of the XPS for other options.
