Should I soak hollyhock seeds before planting? If so, how long must they soak?

They don't need soaking. They are biennial though, so unless you start them very early in the season, they might not bloom the first year. There are a lot of varieties that simply self-seed when they are established.
Plant them together with coreopsis, ladies mantle or my favorite: artemisia absinthium to hide the "ugly" stem.
Common names for this artemisia are: wormwood, green ginger, sweet sage. Happy gardening!
