All the hotshoe adaptors I have found has a PC sync socket but it is only output. Meaning it will trigger an external flash that is connected to the socket.

I am trying to find a hotshoe adaptor that has a PC sync that is input so that I can connect a light meter to it and trigger a flash that is mounted on the hotshoe adaptor.

Have you tried it?  It should work both directions.  It is simply a wire from one contact to the other, and it has no direction.

Now, some optical slave units with PC do have output only,  and probably radio too, but there is more than just a wire in them.
