Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have an application whereas I would like to click on specific hot areas on an OSM and have it open a new browser or tab link to a html or php website. The area on an OSM would be a polygon. For example, if I had a polygon surrounding Yellowstone or the Everglades, clicking on that area would open a web browser to www.nps.gov/yell or www.nps.gov/ever. After "forking" out the web browser, the original OSM would be able to continue panning and zooming as normal.

You are talking about embedding (within your page) or you want to open a real www.osm.org page? Did you already checked this page? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Slippy_Map

Maybe you are looking for something similar to choropleth maps (see wikipedia about it)

by entering "choropleth" in the text search box of this FAQ site you can get some hints that can be maybe helpful to you.
