How do I vent an exposed fastener hip roof, with four equal wall lengths, a square. The hips are equal pitch so the roof will come to a point. I will have lots of soffit venting, but what options do I have for upper roof?

With most metal roofs, you can install passive square or rectangle vents (aka turtle back vents and other names) shortly down from the peak. I would suggest doing it on each side of the roof.

I don't like those vents. Do you know of any detail for a cut out at the very peak and an raised portion to form a large vent?

You can do a ridge/hip vent detail in nearly every application if you take into account the rain shedding from upper roofs and proper precautions against water flowing into the hip vent.
