A RewriteRule that performs an internal rewrite should give you what you 

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^/hello/index.php$ /a.php [L]

By default, the rewrite will perform an internal rewrite, as opposed to 
a 301/302 redirect. If the setup is a little more complex than what you 
describe above, then it may require some additional rules (such as 
redirecting a request for ANY arbitrary file that does not exist). You 
can explore the "RewriteCond -f" directive to make it smarter in that case.
