I don't see any problem here.  Once the PDF file is created it doesn't
matter anymore *how* the hyperlinks were created.

The package clashes you encountered have nothing to do with PDF/A or
PDF/X.  They occur when you *create* a PDF file.  And if there are
clashes at all, then at least two packages are involved.  So why do
you suggest to remove hyperref and not the other package?  Sure, it
can be extremely difficult to find out who the culprit is.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
