You could try FunctionExpand, possibly with optional 2nd argument
putting assumptions on x. However, your purported result in the first
example has a syntax error -- unbalanced parentheses -- which I'm going
to assume should actually be:
(1/2 Sqrt[Pi]) x^3 Exp[-x/2] (BesselK[0, x/2] + BesselK[1, x/2])
And I don't think that's the same thing as your
MeijerG[{{}, {5/2}}, {{2, 3}, {}}, x]
(which is correct Mathematica syntax for a MeijerG that, if I understand
what you wrote, is what you want). In fact, plotting the two functions
reveals the difference.
