It sounds like you just want to set up a reverse proxy. Apache can do
this with mod_proxy. You could also use mod_cache so that content which
doesn't change regularly can sit on the proxy without having to be
re-requested over Tor each time.

I don't see the point of this? tor2web.org already does that, but is
free and doesn't require a password...
