You could try FunctionExpand, possibly with optional 2nd argument putting assumptions on x. However, your purported result in the first example has a syntax error -- unbalanced parentheses -- which I'm going to assume should actually be:
(which is correct Mathematica syntax for a MeijerG that, if I understand what you wrote, is what you want). In fact, plotting the two functions reveals the difference.
