My bathroom window and front door are south facing and they have translucent windows would this filter enough direct light that I could put my hoyas or other plants that need indirect light on the windowsills there?

Your frosted window is fine, however the length of time with very bright light will be the main concern. You need at least 6 hours of minimum light but more would be better. NOT LESS than 6 hr.

Ok thanks, would this work out ok then? Also in the second pic is my main south facing window it gets direct sunlight would that be too much for those 2 hoyas I have there? I've had these for 3 grew from very small plants but they've never bloomed, I've tried moving them to differently lighted areas of the house and keep their humidity high with misting and fertilise every 6-8 weeks but for some reason they've never flowered

Watch the fertilizer because they don't like too much, and that can cause a plant-crash. Sunlight is important for a Hoya plant, but indirect sunlight is best. Having the plant directly in your clear window will cause the leaves to burn from the direct heat of the sun. If the top of the plant passes the top of the window, the plant will be stressed very badly.
