Do they lose their go to ground bonus, or what?
No, nothing happens, they don't need to take pinning tests as they are already pinned.
I'm also pretty sure if you are forced to go to ground due to pinning test you get the bonus save as well

No, if you fail a pinnnig test, you don't get the cover save, which is why I was wondering.
The only thing that a unit "gone to ground" loses, whether voluntary or pinned, is the benefit of cover while being assaulted.
Relevant pages are pg24 & pg31.

Okay then, you're right. I thought it didn't get the save from any fire that phase, but it's just it doesn't get the save from any fire by the unit that pinned it.
