Have 5 outdoor Victorian lamp posts on 110V line each with single 300W mogul base light bulbs. What would be needed to change from current lights to 400 watt mogul base metal halide lamps?

You'll probably blow the circuit. You have 1500 watts there now. You want to go to 2000 watts. This won't fit on a 15-amp circuit (if indeed it is on a 15-amp circuit -- you didn't say). To do this, you'd have to replace all the wiring on the circuit.
