When adding weapons to a hive scum hanger on it has combat shotgun with inferno rounds for 30 points but no combat shotgun with the standard ammo. Perhaps I’ve been doing it wrong but don’t you need to buy the combat shotgun first then buy the inferno ammo after?

No, you are correct. I suspect it's because Hive Scums can only spend up to 60 credits on their equipment, and the Combat shotgun costs 70 credits (so they can never have one). The tools simply don't "know" that it means they can't have Firestorm ammo either (since you need a Combat shotgun to make use of them), though I suppose you can technically have the Scum carry the ammo without any weapon to fire it.

This is exactly right.
