I know that if I am looking at a daily or weekly or whichever time frame and I want the ATR of the 1HR chart, I can use: 

double ATR_V2= iATR(NULL,PERIOD_H1,period,shift);

 But what if I want the ATR of whichever time period I am looking at from 2 periods earlier?  i.e. if I am viewing the Daily chart, it will give me a 1HR ATR.  But if I am viewing a weekly chart, I will be looking at the 4HR ATR?

You should use a period converter function to implement this in ATR

int PeriodConvert (ENUM_TIMEFRAMES etf)
   {
   int tconvert;
   switch (etf)
      {
      case 1:   tconvert  = 1;   break;
      case 5:   tconvert  = 1;   break;
      case 15:   tconvert  = 1;   break;
      case 30:   tconvert  = 5;   break;
      case 60:   tconvert  = 15;   break;
      case 240:   tconvert  = 30;   break;
      case 1440:   tconvert  = 60;   break;
      case 10080:   tconvert  = 240;   break;
      case 43200:   tconvert  = 1440;   break;
      }
   return(tconvert);
   }
