    I got a page that is ranking FAR worse than the other pages on my site....

    So what if I were to rename it's mapping from example.com/about to example.com/info and 301 the /about to the new /info

    Would this rid my page of the penguin penelty and still 301 the backlinking and pr from the old page???

    Home Page:
    301 redirect will transfer backlink juice, but will also transfer penalty.

    I suggest you avoid the 301 redirect and simply re-upload the page on a different name and with slight modifications. accept the loss of backlink juice. At least you won't be transfering the penalty.

    You'd just be redirecting the low rankings.

    Create a new page with new content and try ranking that one for the specific keywords

    A 301 would only hold you back here in my opinion
