No. Hard-wired systems are internal, either built into the chassis of the battlesuit or else cybernetically implanted into the pilot. You can think of hardpoints as weapon mounts. They are places on the outside frame of the battlesuit where external systems may be "plugged in" to control systems and power feeds.

In game terms, each and every Crisis suit must have a support system or weapon attached to each of its three hardpoints. After that, you can add as many hard-wired systems as you like. In the previous version of the codex, there was also a difference in point-cost between hard-wired and hard-point systems.

I hope that clears it up. The terms can be a little confusing. They sound similar, but they are opposites, in a sense. A hard-wired system is difficult to add or remove, whereas the idea of hard-points is to make systems easy to swap out.
You have no idea how much that broadens the possibilities for my suits. THANK YOU!
