Chip thinning enables to increase FEEDRATE when milling with low radial engagements.
Its NOT advisable to use it for finishing operations as it decreases the surface finish.
Hsm checkbox is used to increase SFM when radial engagement is low.
It can be used for both finishing and roughing.
Somebody suggested splitting them up and I feel its best that way.
Sometimes you don't want to boost either feedrate or SFM.

Can I use both the Chip Thinning and the HSM at the same time or is it one or the other?
