comment Is it acceptable to move hand position while practicing scales on guitar?
Generally, three-note-per-string patterns with a span of a major third (five frets including the first-finger fret) should be played with stretch fingering to minimise hand movement. Anything longer and a position shift may be advised. Of course, you should shift position when changing strings if the pattern calls for it - for example, when moving between the A and D and G and B strings in the G Major pattern above.

comment Any way to practice using the very tip of your pinky?
One thing I'd suggest is that you start these exercises in a higher position - perhaps 5-9 instead of 1-5 and 7-9 instead of 3-5. The stretch will be smaller and the the position of your left arm more relaxed, allowing you to concentrate on pinky precision. Once you're comfortable in this higher position, shift the exercises down a fret, repeat and continue doing this until you can play them in first position comfortably and accurately.
